Grilled Mushroom Stacked Salad with Feta Dill Dressing

 I LOVE Greek food so I was really excited to see Megan's pick of Greek Nachos for this week's Food Matters Project.  Really, I could drizzle this 'dressing' on anything and it would taste good!


 Nachos are really just ingredients stacked on top of some sort of chip or topping vessel...so why not take your ingredients or toppings and go stacked?  This salad is just a base.  Let your imagination run wild with what you could do with this salad.  It would be delicious with grilled eggplant or zucchini added to the stack plus maybe some roasted red peppers for fresh bell peppers for a little more of a crunch.

No matter what you put in your salad, make sure you  drizzle some of this heavenly dressing that is really just a thinner version of a greek tzatziki sauce! YUM!
Salad
2 grilled portabello mushroom caps (grilled with salt, pepper and garlic powder and a tsp of olive oil)
1 c fresh spinach
1/4 c diced cherry tomatoes
1 oz feta cheese

Dressing
8 oz of plain greek yogurt
1 c fresh cucumber (skinned and seeded)
1/4 c feta cheese
3 tbsp fresh dill
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1-2 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Put all ingredients (except the olive oil) for your dressing into a food processor and pulse until smooth.  Add the olive oil, one tsp at a time until you reach the desired consistency.  Drizzle over your salad.  Enjoy!

We are grilling mushrooms for dinner tonight. I'm topping them with cheese and avocado BUT next time I'll use this sauce.

Loved this feta drizzle. I think it would go well on a number of things and your idea of topping mushrooms with it sounds great!

Geez, I never even thought of subbing the pita for greens. or adding any greens for the matter. This looks so wholesome and delish, especially the mushrooms!

Thanks Margie! You are right, any greens would do! And I would have added many more veggies to my salad if we had them...you can do anything with this one!
