Our favorite restaurant in Dallas is III Forks. They have a wonderful tomato and onion salad with a blue cheese vinagrette that I always look forward to having. Well, when I tasted this salad, it blew III Forks right out of the water! This is one of the most wonderful salads that I have ever had. I cannot believe that I am able to make this kind of salad from home! The only thing I changed was to use blue cheese instead of feta cheese, because we prefer it over the feta. Kit, I took your suggestion and used Kalamata olives. This is something I will be making again. It also made a beautiful presentation and would WOW company.
Hi~ This is a FANTASTIC summer salad. Great color, ALOT of flavor, easy to put together-I do let it marinate at least 3 hours in the fridge. I had been trying to find a recipe closest to one I had in Calgary-this is just perfect! I'm sorry I forgot to review it earlier. Thanks for posting!!! Di
Your standard, delicious, Greek salad. I used a tarragon/rosemary vinegar in my dressing. I don't use garlic in my version, and only used 2 cloves in this, I found that to be plenty for our tastes as raw garlic is so strong! Allow this to marinate for a while and you will have the most awesome juices to dip your bread into!
Wonderful fresh salad. The simple combination of red wine vinegar and olive oil with oregano and garlic is refreshing. Just wonderful. A super side dish for grilled meat or fish. Especially in the summer when tomatoes are at their peek. Will make often!
