One of my most favourite go-to salad dressings is this easy Greek Salad Dressing Recipe. Made with easy to find ingredients it’s not only great as a dressing for Greek salad but also for pasta salads, quinoa salads or as a marinade for chicken. It is delicious, simple, and especially good on my Greek Quinoa Salad.
Who buys bottled salad dressing anymore? I rarely do- maybe a bottle of ranch or blue cheese for a batch of wings, but generally speaking, I concoct my own salad dressings. Home made salad dressings are always a hit when I share them but while perusing the ones I’ve already posted, I realized that there was a big ol’ hole where a nice Greek Salad Dressing should be! So I decided to remedy that today by sharing my favorite recipe for homemade Greek dressing that’s zippy, zesty, and loaded with flavour.
Greek dressing is a fantastic marinade, I use it for veggies, fish (especially salmon), pork and chicken (on kabobs or whole), and shrimp. You could drizzle it over tomatoes, cucumbers, and avocado as a salad, or even over eggs. We especially love it in my Greek Quinoa Salad and my Greek Pasta Salad. This Greek dressing really is multipurpose!
What You’ll Need to Make Greek Salad Dressing:
Extra virgin olive oil, oregano, garlic, lemon juice and salt are all staples in this dressing. I typically use red wine vinegar, but you could use any vinegar you have in your pantry.
I also use Lemon juice for a great crisp, fresh taste that only lemons can give.
Fresh herbs can quickly jazz up this dressing. Rosemary, parsley, and thyme, would be perfect!
You could also add crumbled feta or a grated hard cheese to this dressing to make a cheesy vinaigrette.
How to make Greek Salad Dressing:
With just the right hint of lemon and garlic this Greek dressing comes together in 5 minutes in a mason jar (if you have one) or any container with a lid. It will truly leave you craving more salad!!
