Panera Greek Dressing

The Panera Greek dressing recipe is used on the chain's Greek salad which is offered daily under the restaurant's hand-tossed cafe salads menu. The Greek salad dressing is a fairly traditional recipe, but it features high-quality ingredients that balance with the romaine lettuce, pepperoncini, red onions, Kalamata olives, feta cheese and tomatoes used in the restaurant's Greek salad. The salad dressing is designed as written to dress one dinner-sized salad, but it can be easily increased to serve any number of guests. When served along with the restaurant's Greek Salad, this dish is suitable for almost every taste palate and can be used as a meal, starter course, or side salad.

The Panera Greek dressing can be easily modified based on taste preferences. Adding some black pepper, garlic, onion powder or basil can spice up the dressing. The dressing can also be used to season baked chicken and to dress a pasta dish. Consider using the dressing along with fresh pasta, tomatoes, Kalamata olives and some Feta cheese for a simple, yet flavor-packed pasta meal.

Panera dishes are traditionally served with a hearty slice of freshly-baked bread. Consider serving the Panera Greek dressing on a salad along with a slice of Ciabatta, Focaccia or sourdough. For an alternative, consider serving with toasted pita chips or with a flat bread.
