Mediterranean Harvest Market Salad Recipe With Creamy Greek Dressing by Donna John

Mediterranean Harvest Market Salad Recipe With Creamy Greek Dressing

When a dish on a restaurant menu just hits the spot and I find myself ordering it again and again, I try to recreate it at home. This healthy Mediterranean harvest market salad recipe is one that tastes almost the same as what I eat in the restaurant. The fresh salad uses farmers market, farm-to-table ingredients and has a creamy homemade Greek dressing made with yogurt, so it's healthier.

To make this Mediterranean-inspired salad recipe you will need tiny potatoes, green beans, red onion, kalamata olives, feta cheese, hardboiled eggs and romaine lettuce. The dressing is a savory combination of olive oil, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, feta cheese, Greek yogurt and dried seasonings.

The potatoes make this a salad that really doesn't need a protein, but you could add salmon, cooked chicken, shrimp or sliced grilled steak. Serve this tasty salad for lunch or dinner.

Recipe Notes

  • If your potatoes are tiny, you can leave them whole. If they're larger, cut in half, quarters or bite-sized-pieces.
  • Adjust the amounts of each ingredient to fit your tastes.
  • For color and more nutrition, add some cherry tomatoes.
  • A spring mix, butter lettuce, green leaf or red leaf lettuce could be used instead of romaine.
  • If you don't have a blender, mash the feta cheese and mix it with the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Whisk well to combine.

Here's how to make it:

  1. To make the salad dressing, combine all the ingredients in a blender. Pulse until combined, adding more water to reach desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until just tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. About 4 minutes before they're done cooking, add the green beans. Remove the green beans and potatoes to an ice bath to stop the cooking, cool and retain the color of the green beans. 
  3. Pile the chopped romaine lettuce onto four serving plates. Divide the potatoes, green beans and remaining ingredients between the plates. Drizzle with the salad dressing or serve it on the side.
