Gorgeous Greek Salad Dressing

Zeus Juice

Face it – if you like caesar dressing, you like anchovies.  No balking about it – it’s a fact.  These little salty gems are the base for this addictive dressing.  Serve it over a salad of crisp greens, cucumbers, tomato, kalamata olives and feta.  Or use it as a dip from crudité – matchsticks of carrots, celery, cucumber, bell pepper and squash couldn’t find a better home than this gorgeous greek salad dressing.

You can make this with only one clove of garlic if you’d like it a little milder.  And you can leave out the anchovies, but you’ll be missing out in a big way.  If your aversion has to do with fiddling around with the fishy filets, use anchovy paste in a tube instead.  It’s a little easier to control and gets the job done in the exact same way.  Bottom line – use the anchovies for true gorgeousness, because your kitchen should be a source of loveliness in every way.

Gorgeous Greek Dressing

1/2 c. plus 3 tbs. of mayo
1/2 c. of red wine vinegar
1/2 c. of olive oil
2 anchovy filets
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbs. of oregano
1/2 tsp. of cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp. of sugar (optional)
salt to taste

Add garlic and anchovies to a small bowl.  Mash with a fork until you form a smooth paste and garlic becomes fragrant.  Slowly whisk in the vinegar, then the olive oil and then the mayo.  Add the oregano, salt and pepper and give a good stir.  Taste for salt and add a little bit of sugar to balance the flavor.  Put in the fridge and chill for a half an hour.  Dressing will thicken in the fridge.
