Greek Salad Dressing

This Greek Salad Dressing is full of flavor and perfect for salads, pasta salads, and fresh vegetables. It’s made with olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon, garlic, and oregano and adds loads of fresh flavor to any dish.

This Greek salad dressing is hands down one of my favorite homemade salad dressing recipes. It was originally published on our other site as this Greek Salad Dressing Recipe, and I love it so much that I’m tweaking it very slightly and sharing it here, too.

This salad dressing recipe very similar to a red wine vinaigrette with a couple added ingredients which gives it a completely different flavor. The result is a vibrant dressing full of fresh citrus and herb flavors while still tasting like a perfectly balanced vinaigrette.

  3. Use this salad dressing immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
