Greek Salad - Noodles and Company Med Salad Dressing
Noodles and Company has a delicious Greek salad called the Med Salad. What I love about it is the curly cavatappi pasta and the spicy greek-style yogurt dressing. This recipe shows you how to make your own Med (Mediterranean) salad at home and also how to make the Med Salad dressing from Noodles and Company.
- 1 cup cavatappi pasta
- Romaine lettuce
- 1 cucumber
- 1 tomato
- 1 red onion
- A handful of black olives
- 1-2 tsp. sriracha hot sauce (depends on how spicy you want it)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. lemon zest
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tbsp. feta cheese, crumbled (for dressing)
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Boil water and cook your cavatappi pasta according to package directions. Mine took around 8 minutes.
Wash and the tomato, cucumber, and onion.
Quarter the tomato so you have 4 quarters. Then cut each quarter in half so you have 8 tomato wedges.
If you don't like the skin on the cucumber use a potato peeler to remove it. Then slice the cucumber to your desired thickness.
Peel the red onion then slice until you have the desired amount for your (Med) Mediterranean salad. On each of your slices be sure to break the layers apart.
Open a can of olives and drain.
Hit your garlic cloves with a pan to easily remove the skin. Then mince the garlic clove or use a garlic press.
Use a grater to zest your lemon.
How to make Noodles and Company Med Salad Dressing
Add your greek yogurt, olive oil, sriracha hot sauce, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, feta cheese (1 tbsp), and just a little salt and pepper to a food processor and blend until smooth. If you have an opening at the top of your food processor add the oil slowly while you blend.
The spicy Greek yogurt dressing will look and taste just like med salad dressing at Noodles and Company.
Pour the med salad dressing into a ramekin, or small dish.
Wash your romaine lettuce, and put through a salad spinner or pat dry. Assemble the lettuce, cucumber slices, onion slices, tomato wedges, and olives on a plate, and top with crumbled feta cheese. Drizzle on your homemade spicy greek-style Noodles and Company med salad dressing.
Optional: Grilled chicken, parmesan crusted chicken breast, or shrimp would make this Greek salad more filling.
