Greek Wedge Salad with Creamy Feta Dressing

The classic wedge salad has been given a Greek inspired twist with a creamy, herbed feta and Greek yogurt based dressing. Small watermelon gherkins add an extra hint of tangy cucumber flavor to this salad; they're most likely to be found at specialty produce stores or farmer's markets. Slideshow:  More Greek Recipes
