Ingredients

Salad

  • 2 lb unpeeled new potatoes
  • 2 medium bell peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded, cut into eighths
  • 1 medium cucumber, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 medium red onion, very thinly sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup whole kalamata or ripe olives
  • 1 package (4 oz) crumbled feta cheese (1 cup)

Lemon Dressing

  • 1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

Steps

  • 1
    If potatoes are large, cut in half. In 3-quart saucepan, place steamer basket in 1/2 inch water (water should not touch bottom of basket). Place potatoes in steamer basket. Cover tightly and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Steam 18 to 22 minutes or until tender; cool to room temperature.
  • 2
    In large glass or plastic bowl, beat all Lemon Dressing ingredients with wire whisk until blended; set aside.

    Add potatoes and remaining salad ingredients except cheese to dressing; toss. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Sprinkle with cheese just before serving.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    This dressing also makes a fantastic Greek Green Salad. Just omit the potatoes, and toss the remaining ingredients with 8 cups bite-size pieces romaine.
  • tip 2
    Serve this delicious and pretty salad on a platter lined with lettuce leaves. Accompany it with warmed pita bread and fresh fruit.
