What is in the Panera Greek Salad?
How to make the Panera Greek Salad and Panera Greek Dressing?
The salad is simple – start a big bowl with your romaine lettuce – I just tear it up instead of cutting it. Then add your toppings! Lots of feta cheese, sliced up grape or cherry tomatoes, plenty of kalamata olives and then a few slices of red onion and a couple of pepperoncincis.
The dressing is just as easy! I have a salad dressing shaker I use to make my own dressing and you just add all the ingredients together and shake! The dressing lasts a couple of weeks in the fridge – it’s pretty great!
Is Panera’s Greek Dressing Vegan?
I love Kalamata olives – they are my favorite! I go through a big jar in a month!!! I use them in my Copycat Skyline Greek Spaghetti recipe and on salads, in pasta, etc. My Lebanesian (is that a word) friend Maria explained to me one day that kalamata means olive – so there’s no need to say kalamata olives – it’s like saying olive olives – but I still do. hahaha
