Make Your Own Dressing Shopping List

1/2 cup of Red Wine Vinegar

1 cup of Olive Oil

Greek/ Mediterranean  Herb Seasoning

Garlic Salt

Feta Cheese

Lemon or Lemon Juice (The Power of Lemon)

Honey

Preparation 

Boil your pasta with a little olive oil and a pinch of salt

Chop up your vegetables to size of your liking, I personally like my medium and chunky.

Dressing Prep

Now when making the dressing to me there is no right or wrong way, I usually  do a taste test. If you prepare the dressing the night before and allow is to marinate the seasonings will be more potent.

Add the olive oil and red wine vinegar together, cut the lemon in half and squeeze into oil and vinegar or use three teaspoons of lemon juice

next add garlic salt (go light on this, until you reach desired taste) and Greek or Mediterranean herb blend

Next add in a little feta cheese, the more feta for me, so even though its already in the pasta add some in the dressing.

Final Step

Mix the pasta and all other ingredients together and mix the dressing in and now you have DJ Mek’s Tossed Greek

I hope you enjoy this simple recipe and that it becomes one of your favorites!!!!
