You get three guesses to figure out what inspired this Creamy Feta Dressing. Do you need a hint? That’s right, The Greek Place Restaurant that used to be located in Cedar Rapids!! At this rate, I will probably recreate their entire menu. The Pastitsio that I always ordered, was served with a dinner salad. Creamy Feta Dressing was the only dressing option for me. I could drink this stuff out of the jar it is so good!
Feta is an aged cheese, so this dressing has never upset my stomach… <insert happy dance>! Not that I would have cared, I really love this dressing. It is thick and creamy just like my other favorite, Ranch Dressing. Shockingly enough, it is perfect on a Greek Salad…..
In Greece, Feta Cheese is made with sheep’s milk or a mixture of sheep and goat’s milk. In the United States, it is made with cow’s milk. I have no idea why. It is probably cheaper to make it that way. 🙁
Feta is a soft, brined cheese with a grainy texture and a salty flavor. It is commonly formed into blocks, but can usually only be found crumbled in the grocery store.
This dressing is incredibly easy to make. In fact, there is only one photo! I completely forgot to take more. 😉 Place the feta cheese, milk, and vinegar in a bowl, and mash together to break apart the chunks……
Add all of the additional ingredients and whisk together until well combined. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for several hours so the flavors can mingle and get happy…..
I put a bit too much dill in mine, so I adjusted the recipe. Your dressing will have less than what you see here in these photos. 🙂
Next up we will have the Greek “Summery” Meat Pie…Yum!!
