Creamy Feta Salad Dressing with Fresh Herbs

Feta cheese should be made from goat’s milk or sheep’s milk, and made in Greece. If not, it cannot be labeled “feta” because this delicious Greek cheese is a protected brand. This delicious cheese can be replaced by a milder-flavored cheese with a similar crumbly texture if you want a softer taste. Use dried oregano instead of fresh if you prefer. If you are using dried, you will only need half the amount. When you are tossing this creamy feta salad dressing with your salad, be generous with the dressing.

You can serve this dressing alongside tabbouleh, with a Caesar salad, over tuna steaks or chicken breasts, as a dip for radishes, raw veggies, or pita chips, or with falafel. It is also good over sliced tomatoes. The dressing is nice chunky but you can also puree it in a food processor or in the blender. This creamy feta salad dressing keeps for up to four days in the refrigerator.

Making this is as wonderfully easy as you would hope. All you need to do is mash the feta cheese with a little vinegar, then add the other ingredients, combining until the consistency is right. Tweak the ingredients as you need, because some kinds of feta are drier than others. If you often find yourself making or ordering Greek salad because you love the distinctive feta flavor, make this dressing and you can add that feta cheese taste to any salad you make.

Rich, tangy and creamy, this delicious feta cheese dressing pairs beautifully with salad leaves, cucumber and cherry tomatoes, along with some black olives, if you want to make a Greek style dish, or you could just drizzle it over chicken and baby spinach, or use it as a dip for celery. This could not be easier to prepare either, since all you need to do is mash the ingredients together. Since feta is the main ingredient and flavor in this dressing, ensure you choose a good quality brand for the tastiest results.
