Michael Psilakis feels strongly about using dried Greek oregano to make this vinegary, feta-packed salad. Greek oregano, he claims, has a lovely floral fragrance that ordinary dried oregano doesn't. Look for it at specialty food markets.

  1. 1/2 pound green beans, halved crosswise
  2. 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  3. 1 garlic clove
  4. 1/2 small shallot, chopped
  5. 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  6. 1/2 teaspoon dried Greek oregano
  7. 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
  8. 1 large basil leaf
  9. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  10. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  11. 1 pound grape tomatoes, halved
  12. 1/2 small red onion, halved lengthwise and very thinly sliced crosswise
  13. 1/4 pound Greek feta cheese, crumbled (1 cup)
  1. In a medium pot of boiling salted water, cook the green beans until just tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water; pat the beans dry.
  2. In a blender, combine the red wine vinegar with the garlic clove, shallot, mustard, oregano, thyme and basil and puree until smooth. With the machine on, slowly add the olive oil. Season the vinaigrette with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the blanched green beans, tomato halves, sliced onion and crumbled feta cheese. Toss with the vinaigrette and serve the salad immediately.
