Gorgeous Greek Feta Salad Dressing
Measure the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and oregano into a small jar with a screw-top lid and shake to combine.
Peel and half the cucumber.
Scoop the seed center out with the melon baller tool and throw the seeds away.
Slice the halves into four strips and cut the strips into a large dice.
Cut one half of a green and red bell pepper.
Scoop any seed and white membrane from the interior of each piece.
Put the unused portion into a plastic bag and refrigerate for later use.
Cut the halves into 6 strips and cut the strips into a large dice.
Cut the top of a red onion off and peel back the first layer to the root end.
Using the stainless slicer tool, thinly slice about 1/4 of the onion into the bowl.
Use three medium tomatoes cut into wedges or in this recipe I used 2 cups of organic cherry tomatoes.
Add 24 seedless whole Kalamata Olives.
Sunergia Lemon Oregano Feta Cheese
Crumble about 4 ounces of Sunergia Lemon Oregano Feta Cheese into the bowl.
Add the dressing and mix until all the vegetables and cheese are coated.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Scoop a generous portion onto your plate with some pepperocini, hummus and slices of your favorite crusty bread.
