Super Greens with Creamy Feta Dressing

Super Greens with Creamy Feta Dressing

Super Greens with Creamy Feta Dressing salad contains so much goodness, I do not know what else to name the salad than super !

This is one of my personal favorites and a salad which I can easily live on - with a side of fish or meat of course. My family loves the salad (almost) as much as I do, therefore I always make a double batch than what is shown below in the recipe.

The recipe is more than enough for 6 servings, of which each serving is just under a cup per person. If your family is not that much into Broccoli and Feta, this is a fairly average size salad. You can always make one and a half batch, or a double batch if you are taking the salad along to a family or friends gathering.

I single out Broccoli and Feta above, as those are the two flavors which comes through the strongest in this super Greens with creamy Feta Dressing salad.  The Zucchini adds a lot of crunch of course, with small bits of crunchy Celery also in the mix.

Besides the bit of blanching of the Broccoli, this salad comes together in minutes. I use Baby Zucchini which I shave into ribbons with a plain old potato peeler, even though I have all kinds of fancy gadgets to do this - takes me longer looking for the gadgets than getting my potato peeler from the top cutlery drawer !

Note**:  If you have never blanched Broccoli, it is really very simple. Bring the Broccoli, covered with Water and a little Salt added to the boil - boil over high heat for 2 minutes - drain and immediately dump the Broccoli in a bowl filled with ice-cold Water - give it around one minute, then drain well and use as below (done in under 5 minutes!)

  1. I try to serve broccoli at least once a week. Great to have a new recipe to try.
