Simple salad with yogurt dressing
This is how I make my simple "everyday" salad. Lettuce and crunchy veggies are tossed with refreshing yogurt dressing and topped with crunchy seeds and salty feta cheese. You can easily modify it, depending on what you have in your fridge.
Servings 4 servings
for the salad:
- 2 handfuls lettuce mix
- 1/4 English cucumber
- 1/3 yellow bell pepper
- 6 cherry tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
- 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
- 1 oz feta cheese 30g
for the yogurt dressing:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoons yogurt
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 small clove garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
Tear the lettuce into smaller pieces. Spin the lettuce dry in a salad spinner (optional, but recommended).
Wash all the vegetables and dry them. Cut the cucumber into slices, bell pepper into strips, tomatoes in half.
Toast pepitas and sunflower seeds in a dry pan, until lightly browned and fragrant. Be careful not to burn them – when they smell nutty and are lightly browned remove them immediately from the pan.
Make the dressing: add all the ingredients into a jar, close the lid and shake vigorously until well-combined (you can also whisk the ingredients in a bowl).
Toss the lettuce with chopped vegetables, toasted seeds, and yogurt dressing until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
