Ingredients

Dill & Garlic Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Salad:

  • 1 pound cherry or grape tomatoes cut in half (OR about 3 large tomatoes, seeded & chopped)
  • 1 pound cucumbers (approximately 2 large or 4 small) peeled & diced
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives drained, pitted, & chopped
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill chopped (for garnish)

Instructions

For the Dressing:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, sugar, garlic, fresh minced dill, oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper until thoroughly blended. Alternatively, you may measure the ingredients into a jar, tighten the lid, and shake until incorporated, or blend together in a blender or mini food processor.

For the Salad:

  • In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and feta. Whisk or shake the dressing and pour over the top. Toss together until all of the ingredients are evenly coated.
  • Cover the salad and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, removing from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving. Stir well, garnish with dill, and serve with a slotted spoon to drain off any excess dressing.
