Ingredient Notes: 

Olive Oil: It’s important to use quality olive oil here. Look for extra-virgin in a jar that isn’t clear. A good olive oil 100% tastes different! And please for the love of dressing, do not use things like vegetable oil instead.

Red Wine Vinegar: Don’t swap your vinegar for anything else here unless you want to have a different taste completely. Red wine vinegar is made with fermented red wine and provides the right flavor and tang for the best Greek salad dressing.

Herbs: I use oregano in my homemade Greek dressing because it makes it authentic, however, there is nothing wrong with swapping it out for another herb like thyme or rosemary. It’ll provide a different flavor, but still will be delicious and versatile.

How do you make homemade Greek dressing?

So many people opt for store-bought salad dressings, and I think that’s because they don’t realize how easy it is to make them homemade. Homemade dressings are way healthier because there are no preservatives and you know exactly what is going into the dressing. This Greek Salad Dressing recipe is so easy and delicious. Here are the simple steps to make it:

Other than an authentic Greek salad, you can also use this dressing on any of your favorite salads, on cooked or raw veggies, on a grain bowl, to marinate tofu, tempeh, or your favorite feta.
