Greek Salad

Samantha has a bit of an obsession for Greek Salad. It isn't to surprising when you consider that her favorite ingredients in salad are cheese and the dressing. Throw in her infatuation with Greece and we have a way to make a hard day a little better.

So, in order to help her eat her vegetables(which I am in an endless quest) I searched far and wide for a great Greek dressing recipe. Well, I hit a home run on the first try. The recipe claimed to be the best Greek dressing ever and I've yet to meet someone who thinks differently. It is amazing on every salad and as a dip for veggies. So without further ado, here is the recipe for the heavenly nectar. Let me know what you think.

Ingredients(I've modified so that it fits perfectly in a make-it-yourself dressing bottle):
3/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp basil
1.5 tsp pepper
1.5 tsp salt
1.5 tsp onion powder
1.5 tsp dijon mustard

1) Measure and pour red wine vinegar into a bottle.
2) Add seasoning to vinegar
3) Add mustard(It's an emulsifier. I'm not sure this is the place for a chemistry lesson, but let's just say it allows the vinegar to dissolve in olive oil)
4) Add olive oil and shake
5) Pour and enjoy!
