salad with feta vinaigrette

A quick salad for these steamy summer nights...

I modified this recipe from Eating Well.  I'd recommend using super fresh feta, if possible, instead of the already-crumbled kind that comes in little tubs to cut down on saltiness.  If you do use a pre-crumbled package, you probably don't need to add any additional salt.  We dressed a spinach salad with red onions and cucumbers for a light summer meal.  

Feta Vinaigrette
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 c crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2-3 tsp lemon juice, to taste
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Blend, food process or just whisk all of the ingredients together until smooth.

ps-  There's a book that's been on my Amazon wish list for awhile now called No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog. Is the author trying to tell me something?
