Greek Vinaigrette with Feta

That should really say with LOTS of feta...

In our house, anything with Greek dressing and feta makes it better, well..maybe not blueberry muffins..or pancakes. Ok, so not anything. I usually buy the bottle stuff and serve it over cucumber and tomatoes. I am still searching for the 'perfect' dressing, a dressing we had years ago in our early dating phase during trivia night at an Irish pub, yes, Greek dressing at an Irish pub. It was creamy, and tart and just perfect.

But for now, this homemade version will work. It's very tart and wonderful. SUPER easy and your probably have most of the ingredients in your kitchen right now.

1/2 cup FRESH lemon juice
3 garlic cloves, peeled and minced
2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
1 teaspoon white sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
2/3 cup olive oil
1/2 cup crumbled feta

Place everything BUT the feta in a jar with a tight fitting lid and give it a shake. Mix in the feta and chill overnight. 

It was EXCELLENT poured over some sliced cucumbers and chilled overnight. Yummy!
