Greek Wedge Salad

Greek Wedge Salad

A simple crisp wedge salad with classic Greek flavors–refreshing, crunchy, healthy, and so delicious!

I found this recipe on Tasty Kitchen that sounded really tasty. We all really enjoy Mediterranean food and we love wedge salads so I thought the combination sounded terrific. I adapted the recipe a bit by adding dill and fresh garlic to the salad dressing. I also used pickled red onions instead of plain and I added toasted pine nuts because we love them as a salad topper. My entire family thought this wedge salad was delicious and it paired very nicely with Greek chicken and a steamed artichoke.

How to Make a Greek Vinaigrette

Make the Greek vinaigrette by combining red wine vinegar, olive oil, Dijon, minced garlic, basil, oregano, dill, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, sugar, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, in a small jar. Seal with a lid and shake to combine. Set aside to allow flavors to mingle.

 Side Note: We like a tangy dressing, if you don’t, add a bit more olive oil.
