Creamy Feta Vinaigrette

Yield Makes 3/4 cup
Instead of tossing chunks of feta into her salad or crumbling the cheese on top of cooked vegetables, Melissa Rubel purees it right into a vinaigrette. This makes the dressing smooth and luscious and ensures a little bit of tang in almost every bite.

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces feta cheese, preferably French crumbled (3/4 cup)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

How to Make It

  1. In a food processor, pulse the crumbled feta with the red wine vinegar, water, oregano and olive oil until the vinaigrette is smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
