This Greek 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 dressing is hands down one of my favorite homemade salad dressings. 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.
A simple Greek dressing is more like a Greek vinaigrette really. It’s very similar to a red wine vinaigrette with a couple added ingredients which gives it a totally different flavor. The result is a vibrant dressing full of fresh citrus and herb flavors while still tasting like a perfectly balanced vinaigrette.
How to make Greek dressing from scratch:
- Place the red wine vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper in a bowl or jar.
- Whisk to combine (or place a lid on the jar and shake if you’re using that method).
- Use immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
Yes, it can easily be doubled and stored in a large container at room temperature. The Greek vinaigrette is good for about a week.
Rosemary, thyme, or basil would all be good replacements for the dried oregano in Greek dressing.
