Skip the store-bought and try this easy and delicious Homemade Greek Salad Dressing Recipe. The taste is perfect on any salad!
Store-bought salad dressing is definitely convenient, but over the years I have learned that dressings are very easy to make. Not only are they easy to make but they taste so much better when they are homemade. With simple recipes like Homemade Ranch Dressing mix and Italian Dressing Mix, there is no reason not to mix up a few of your own dressings. This Homemade Greek Salad Dressing recipe is another winner and a great way to mix things up a bit.
What you need
Greek Salad Dressing is a vinaigrette that is full of Mediterranean flavors. Depending on the recipe many contain oregano, red wine vinegar, garlic, and olive oil.
Store this dressing in a sealable glass container. Mason jars are perfect! Keep it in the fridge for 1 - 2 weeks. You can also find fun glass dressing bottles at your favorite home store or online.
Amazon even has a large selection of salad dressing bottles and shakers.
What Goes in a Greek Salad?
A Greek salad is like a traditional tossed salad with feta cheese, cucumber, red onion, bell peppers, and greek olives. They are great on their own as a meal, or as a side dish.
You don't have to reserve this dressing for a traditional Greek Salad. You can use it on any type of salad, or in other recipes. It makes an amazing marinade for chicken too!
How to Make Greek Salad Dressing
Making this salad dressing is super simple. Just whisk together the ingredients. You can even put them all in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and give it to a child to shake. They love shaking the dressing and being a part of the cooking process.
