Delicious Yogurt and Feta Dressing

I've been hooked on yogurt feta dressing all week, just haven't been able to get enough. There's just something about its fresh, creamy flavour with a little punch of tang. I've been making cucumber and tomato salads topped with green onions or mint or sunflower sprouts. The great thing about this salad is that it's a nice change from all those lettuce salads we got enough of during the summer.

Give this dressing a try- I'm sure you'll love it too. It's simple, tasty and the secret lays in using equal parts yogurt and feta cheese.

Cucumber and Sunflower Sprout Salad

1 cucumber
2 ripe tomatoes
handful of sunflower sprouts or green onions
3 tablespoons plain yogurt
3 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
black pepper

Make the dressing first. Blend yogurt, feta, lemon juice, garlic and pepper together with a whisk and set aside.

For the salad, slice the cucumber, chop the tomatoes and thinly slice the green onions or wash the roughly chop the sprouts. Dip the cucumbers in the yogurt feta dressing to coat.

Place the cucumbers on a plate or serving dish and top with the remaining ingredients. Drizzle a little more dressing or feta cheese and top with cracked black pepper. Enjoy!

If your looking for a heartier salad to make with this dressing, check out this raw vegetable salad with yogurt-feta dressing from Jeannette Ordas at Everybody Likes Sandwiches. It looks like a great salad to pack for lunch.

Yum! I'm am all over this :)

Spring is here in Wellington and I'm so keen to try out your delicious salad recipes. Do you have a favorite salad with butter beans? I've got a few cans kicking around.

Hope you are well,
