  • ¼ small red onion, slivered and rinsed
  • one box pre-washed mixed greens
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped feta, French is best
  • ¼ cup loosely packed, roughly torn parsley leaves
  1. Chop garlic very finely. Sprinkle half of salt over garlic and mash salt and garlic together with the side of your knife, making it into a paste. Add garlic, Dijon, balsamic, salt and pepper to a bowl and whisk to combine. Slowly drizzle in olive oil, whisking constantly.
