Greek Salad with Creamy Dressing

 
My daughter says that a Greek Salad should have at least as much "stuff" as lettuce. I agree. I made this one for a little Mother's Day dinner, and it was a huge hit.

 

 

Creamy Greek Dressing

 

1 cup raw cashews, soaked 20 minutes or longer, up to overnight

1-2 T fresh oregano

2 T nutritional yeast

1/2 tsp salt, or to taste

about 1/2 cup juice from a jar of pepperoncini

 

Place all ingredients except the pepperoncini juice in a blender or food processor.

Add the juice gradually as you blend, until the dressing is smooth and creamy, and has a nice thick consistency.

 

Greek Salad

 

chopped lettuce and/or other greens of your choice

chopped tomatoes

chopped cucumbers

chopped red onions (I leave these big enough to pick out, because I don't like them)

artichoke hearts packed in water, cut into large bite-size pieces

pitted kalamata olives, cut in half

sliced pepperoncini

Tofu Feta

 

Toss everything together in a large bowl, with enough Creamy Greek Dressing to coat the salad well, but not to smother it.

 

I served this up with pita bread and Oil-Free Hummus. Perfect!

 

PS - I made it again for a potluck, only this time substituted brown rice pasta for the greens. They cleaned out the bowl! Fortunately, I left some at home, and it's great layered on top of some greens for a full meal salad.
