My Big Fat Greek Salad

My Big Fat Greek Salad

I have this theory that everything in life somehow relates to a quote from My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
Wake up in the morning with a huge zit?
Here, put some Windex on it.
Are you a vegetarian?
What do you mean you don’t eat NO MEAT?….Ah, that’s ok. I make lamb.
Confused on the meaning of a word, any word?
Give me a word, aaaaany word, and I show you, that the root of that word, is Greek.

You get the idea.  I guess what I’m saying is, My Big Fat Greek Wedding is useful in a lot of ways.

So are Greek salads!

There’s something so right about tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, and feta cheese.  Add some homemade Greek dressing and it’s perfection.  For the salad I chopped up a red onion, a cucumber, two tomatoes, a couple of Kalamata Olives, some carrots (because they were starting to look sad and neglected in the fridge) and some Romaine lettuce.  I tossed to combine and added some Feta cheese.

For the dressing I whisked together Dijon mustard, anchovy paste (I’m slightly obsessed), and some mayonnaise.  I then added some cider vinegar and dried oregano and stirred to combine.  While whisking, I drizzled in some extra virgin olive oil to emulsify the dressing.  I finished off with some salt and pepper to taste and I was done!  I poured the dressing over the salad and tossed everything together.

This is a fresh, tangy salad with an easy and delicious salad dressing made from things you probably already have in your pantry/fridge.  The dressing would be great over some cold pasta and grape tomatoes for a quick pasta salad, too.

Oh, here’s one more example of how you can use My Big Fat Greek Wedding:
