The theme for No Croutons Required this month is dressings. Wednesday is the deadline for entries, so there are still a few more days left to get your entries in. As salads are a staple item on most dinner tables, the more recipes on hand for homemade dressing the better.
For my contribution this month, I settled on a zesty sun-dried tomato vinaigrette. Homemade salad dressings are a snap to whip up, and add a terrific boost of flavor for ordinary garden salads when you use quality ingredients. And sun-dried tomatoes add even more of a flavor kick! For the salad base, I tossed together some leafy greens, sliced red pepper, pitted olives, chopped tomatoes from my garden, and a few chopped cremini mushrooms. I sprinkled each serving with some chunks of feta cheese and drizzled on the vinaigrette. Yum1
