Greek Feta Vinaigrette (and Homemade Greek Seasoning)

This Greek Feta Vinaigrette may run contrary to many posts on the blog because as you may know, I love treats (a quick glance at my recipe box proves this)~ in fact, this is something I am trying to work at. I still want treats, but am trying to focus on yummy, fresh, maybe a little healthier treats, for now anyways. After all, who wants a blogger booty, or at least that’s what I call it when I feel like I have been a little heavy on the treat side, especially lately since I  hurt my darn back and haven’t been able to get in as much exercise as I like. So I thought we’d start with this salad dressing recipe. It’s so good~ great on a salad, and even better drizzled over a homemade gyro. It’s cool and creamy, with a little kick. What will you drizzle?

    Oh these are fantastic! I too am a new GFC follower from Boost your Buzz Summer Giveaway but I have to say even without the giveaway I’m really glad to have found you – I will definitely be “shuffling” through your posts … some of these already look out of this world!

    Thanks so much for sharing.
