Kalamata Olive and Feta Vinaigrette

Kalamata Olive and Feta Vinaigrette

I made parmesan chicken and creamy mashed potatoes for dinner and I wanted a Greek flavored salad to pair with them. I found a wonderful-looking kalamata olive and feta vinaigrette on Closet Cooking that looked delicious, and since I trust Kevin’s recipes, I decided to make it. Since the vinaigrette has such strong flavors, I decided to serve it on a simple salad of baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and pine nuts. Thankfully, I made the vinaigrette in the afternoon so it had time for the flavors to mingle and it was SO delicious! It tasted fantastic on the salad and it also tasted great with the chicken. We all enjoyed this tangy and delicious vinaigrette–especially me. I enjoyed some of it the next day on my salad for lunch and it was even more flavorful. YUM! Guess what’s going on my salad tonight?

  1. I would love this but my husband would not even touch it if he knew it had feta in it 🙁 Have a good week Diane

  2. I love about anything with Feta in it and sure I’d like this dressing – will try soon. I notice there is mustard and honey in the photo but not mentioned in the ingredients list.

    1. See what happens when I type a recipe while trying to do two other things at the same time? Thanks for letting me know!! I have corrected the recipe.

  3. Wow, this looks amazing — just loaded with flavor. Neat recipe — and an easy one, even better. 🙂 Thanks so much.

  4. When we had our summer home in Maine, a restaurant there told us how they made their Greek dressing which I make but without honey and olives. Can’t wait to give this version a try…it sounds great.

  5. I love how downright savory this vinaigrette is! So many gloriously salty elements to perk up the salad.
