Ingredients for Greek salad dressing

🍲 Ingredients

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 to Make Greek Salad 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:

1. To a medium-sized mason jar add all the ingredients and shake till well combined

2. Use immediately and store it in the fridge for at least 10 days

🗒 Substitutions

  • Herbs: Get creative, if you want to add dried thyme or dried rosemary that would work great too!
  • Vinegar: White wine vinegar or champagne vinegar could work too, it’ll give a different flavor but still be delicious

👝 How to Store Leftovers

Store in the fridge in a jar for at least 10 days. Just shake it up again before using it. If your olive oil congeals, don’t worry, you just need to leave the dressing at room temperature for a little while and then shake it up. It’ll go back to normal

🤔 Common Questions

What should I eat this dressing on?

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. Salad dressing doesn’t just need to be used on salad. No matter what kind of dressing you are making, it has multiple uses and can be a fantastic marinade. You can also get creative with this recipe and add your fav fresh herbs to the mix as well.

Is Greek salad dressing easy to make?

Yes! Making your salad dressings is so easy. I highly recommend making your own and storing them in the fridge to have on hand. This way you know exactly the ingredients going into them, and they’re healthier than what you buy at the store.

Hi. I tried the dressing and its fantastic.
Just wondering if it can be frozen?

Thank you! It can definitely be frozen! Make sure after thawing to blend in to allow it to properly emulsify back together!

Thanks for the delicious-perfect recipe. Should I wait to dress the salad or is it okay right away like half an hour in advance? Also, how long can I keep the dressing in the fridge?

Maria Koutsogiannis

You can definitely dress your salad half an hour before serving, just be sure to keep it in the fridge until then! The salad dressing on its own can last up to two weeks!
