summer vibes...

it's been so long...
i'm trying to get back into the groove.  let's start with a recipe.  this was fantastic and will definitely stay in the summer rotation.

    Dill & Garlic Dressing:
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Salad:
  • 1 pound tomatoes (cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half, or about 3 large tomatoes, seeded & chopped)
  • 1 pound cucumbers (approximately 2 large or 4 small), diced
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, drained, pitted, & chopped
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, for garnish
    For the dressing:
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together all dressing ingredients until thoroughly blended. Alternatively, you may place ingredients in a jar, tighten the lid, and shake until incorporated.
  2. For the salad:
  3. In a large bowl, combine all salad ingredients. Toss with dressing until everything is evenly coated.
  4. Cover salad and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, removing from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before serving. Drain off any excess dressing and garnish with dill, if desired.
and dessert...
