How to Make Walla Walla Onion and Feta Salad
- peel and halve onions, slice thinly and place in medium bowl. Sprinkle with Crumbled Feta. Add colored pepper julienne if using.
- Mix together half the parsley, all remaining dressing ingredients except the olive oil(lemon juice, oregano, vinegar, salt and pepper). Whisk in the olive oil to emulsify. (It will not hurt if it is not completely emulsified) Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.
- Pour dressing over onions/feta, toss well, adjust seasonings and sprinkle with remaining parsley. Cover and refrigerate or serve room temp.
- I have found that I like this freshly made, but if I keep it overnight in the fridge it is even better. :) Just remember to take it out a little before serving to warm up so the olive oil will be liquid.
