Feta Cheese-Dill Dressing

14 Nov

I came up with this delicious salad dressing last night and it really wowed my crowd. If you’re a garlic lover you can add 1 more garlic clove for extra bang on your tongue.

  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup fresh dill sprigs, thick stems removed
  • 3 TBS fresh lemon juice
  • 2 TBS extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 TBS Dijon mustard
  • 4 oz feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup water

Place the garlic, dill, lemon juice, olive oil, and mustard in a blender and process until finely chopped. Add the feta cheese then slowly add some of the water until your desired consistency while processing again until very smooth. Stop and scrape down if needed. Season with salt and transfer to a serving container.

Will keep tightly covered in the refrigerator for 1 week. Shake well before using.

Drizzle 1 TBS onto each serving of salad, warm pasta, or in-between pita bread with sliced cucumbers.

    What a great recipe! I’ve never thought of turning my love for feta into a salad dressing. I can’t wait to try this; especially with an extra pinch of dill.

    This stuff is The Bomb!! I lad out a few flour tortillas, slathered on a decent portion of the dressing and topped it with a mixed salad of greens, chopped carrots and sliced radishes before rollong them up. AWESOME!! I can’t think of eating a wrap any other way now!
