Lemon Oregano Greek Dressing
Everybody knows how important it is to eat vegetables. No matter which style of eating or diet you prescribe to, they all have one thing in common: vegetables are good for you and you should be including them in as many meals as you can.
The issue I hear all the time is that vegetables get boring. They lack the flavor. That could be because you’re used to eating roided-out, hyper-palatable, pseudo foods and your palate is basically like a cocaine addicted junkie...
But it could also just be that you need a little more help and inspiration to keep things fresh (pun intended!) and exciting.
Flavoring salads and veggies comes down to SEASONINGS. Fresh foods taste good once you get used to eating them, but they taste even better when combined with herbs, spices, fats, and acids. And that, my friend, is a dynamite template for a dressing.
Mind you, dressings aren’t just for salads. They can be used for all kinds of stuff! You could steam or grill some veggies and include a delicious dressing on top or for dipping. Or, you could make a salad and throw the dressing on top, and not all salads have to have lettuce! How about a simple chopped salad with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and jicama?
One of my great go-to flavors for fresh foods is Greek. This salad dressing has a nice balance of lemon, garlic, and herbs, and just enough zing to keep your tastebuds happy.
COOK TIME: 15 Minutes
1 Lemon (zested & juiced)
1 tbsp Oregano
1 handful Parsley (chopped)
1/3 cup Red Wine Vinegar
1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)
Mix all ingredients together except for olive oil in a bowl, and stir to combine.
Slowly whisk in the olive oil to allow the dressing to emulsify. Hint: you can also put everything together in a mason jar and shake!
No fresh herbs?
The flavors won’t be quite as strong but you can use dried instead!
