This is delicious, low-fat and super-easy ... I like to load it up with extra cilantro and tomatoes. Also try using lime juice in place of the lemon juice for a little different taste. It's a perfect vegetarian main dish salad, or serve it as a side dish with grilled or roasted pork or ham. Prep time includes time spent in the refrigerator blending flavors; yield depends on whether salad is eaten as the main dish or as a side dish.
I was surprised to see that, although quite a number of cucumber-dill recipes are available, nobody seems to have hit on the combination with feta cheese. Light and summery. Good for picknicks as well -- in that case bring the cheese separately and add just before serving. Good-quality olive oil is essential.
This is perfect to take to a picnic during the summer months because it has NO MAYO!!! It is light, sweet and crunchy. I got the recipe at Trader Joe's this morning. Feel free to substitute out balsamic vinegar instead of the vinaigrette. . .we like it that way too!
This has been my favourite salad dressing for quite some time. It's just so tasty. I keep coming back to this recipe, it's a staple for me. Lots of good for you ingredients if you get them raw, and I look forward to my salads when I have this dressing made up, or the ingredients to whip up a batch! I always feel great after eating it.
Really nice dressing! One measure of a good home cook is the ability to make your own salad dressing. Or so says Mark Bittman in the food section of the New York Times. This is the orange dressing you sometimes see on your too-cold salad in Japanese restaurants. I made this tonight, and thought it was much better than any other I ever tried at a Japanese restaurant! I made this with half the corn oil, so if you'd like to try the original recipe you can increase amount to 1/4 cup. I did not decrease the sesame oil (but did use regular).
This colourful salad looks fantastic on the table, and is so-o-o easy to make. I originally created it to take to a barbecue, and everyone loved it. You can be flexible with quantities for the feta, olives and dressing—suit your own taste and visual preferences. Also, you can add chopped parsley or any other herbs or spices that appeal to you.
There is no need to buy salad dressing when it is so easy to make your own. This is my all-purpose Italian dressing. Because it doesn't need to be refrigerated, there is always a bottle on our dining room table. It keeps for ages.
