Be prepared for the best Greek salad on the planet! --- plan ahead the dressing needs at least 2 or more hours to blend the flavors, I sometimes add in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese to the dressing for a more cheesy dressing, all amounts may be adjusted to taste ---- to marinade the salad allow to sit at room temperature before serving, see bottom of instructions --- you will find this and many more of my recipes posted here http://kittencalskitchen.com/2009/04/13/kittens-famous-greek-salad/ ---also see my recipe #359292
This is a pasta salad full of fun flavors and vibrant color. I haven’t tried it yet, but I got the recipe off the website coolrunning.com and wanted to keep it to make this summer. Cook time is chilling in the fridge.
This kosher salad was posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. The source is The Hadassah Jewish Holiday Cookbook - Traditional Recipes from Contemporary Kosher Kitchens. DH and I love the flavors of this simple salad. The fresh herbs really make this dish. As a bonus, it's also a South Beach diet friendly dish.
I know there are other recipes for Oriental Coleslaw here. I mentioned in a thread on "everything else" that my local grocery store makes the best one I've ever tasted, and one of the girls behind the counter gave me the recipe!
The dressing is what makes this salad! You don't have to adhere to the list of salad ingredients: put in whatever strikes your fancy. I usually grill up extra chicken breasts when we're having grilled chicken and use them to make up the salad for the next day.
I made this salad for an end of school year pot luck. The following year I was asked if I would bring it again. People remember this salad from year to year. It can be made the day before and chilled - which is very helpful. It uses a full pound of bacon. The cook time is actually "chill time" in the refrigerator.
Until we went to Greece, we always made Greek salad with lettuce. Now we know this is the way they do it in Greece, and it's so much better (not to mention simple)! The amounts used are rough guides, you can adjust them to your taste.
