Mediterranean Olive Salad


image of Mediterranean Olive SaladI planned to have dinner at my home with some of my neighbor friends.  There would be six of us.  So this was an opportunity to create a new salad to share with my friends.

We paired the salad with baked pork loins and salmon and vegetables with garlic bread.

Then I realized that one couple thought it was a different day, so I had them over the next day with meatloaf, veggies and left over Olive Salad and Dressing.  It was still great!

All my guests really enjoyed the salad and dressing.

    As I love Mediterranean food, I will for sure add these to my kitchen 🙂

    • Dalibor, thank you for visiting my blog site and for your comment. I’m a fan of Greek and mediterranean meals also. I’m looking forward to creating more delicious salads in that venue. Thanks again. Shirley

  • For most part, I try to base my meals on a Mediterranean diet. I will definitely make this salad for my family over the weekend. Actually, I’ve never tried making salad dressing, so this is perfect. Thanks for sharing such a healthy recipe.

    • Carol, thanks so much for visiting my blog site and for your kind comments. Be sure to blend the dressing well until it is creamy. It lasts a long time in the frig also. I love healthy salads also and find myself dreaming about what to create next during the day. Thanks again Carol. -shirley
