The key to a perfect Greek Salad Dressing is to keep it simple, just a bit of red wine vinegar, earthy oregano, good olive oil and some salt and pepper. Greek Salad is a delicious medley of sweet and tangy, crunchy and creamy ingredients and needs very little to accentuate the flavors and bring them all together.

I love to use this Greek salad dressing on classic Greek salads and embellished versions of it like Greek Farro Salad and Greek Potato Salad. But it’s a wonderful staple salad dressing too for simple green salads, pasta salads and even as a dip for raw vegetables or a drizzle for vegetables that you’ve roasted.

When I show you how easy it is to make, I bet it will become a go-to dressing in your house just as it is in ours. (And don’t miss my homemade Caesar Dressing, this honey sweetened Balsamic Vinaigrette, this Strawberry Vinaigrette, my Sesame Ginger Dressing, Parmesan Vinaigrette or this Champagne Vinaigrette.)

How to Make Greek Salad Dressing

Step 1: Whisk red wine vinegar, dried oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

    I am a total sucker for a good Greek salad! In fact, now that I think about it, I haven’t had a Greek salad in ages. I’m totally going to pick up the ingredients at the store…but I’m making my own dressing this time! This recipe is easy and sounds perfect for that salad! 🙂

      Love to hear that, David! Thank you!

    Since I started making homemade salad dressings a few years ago, I can’t go back to store-bought. They are so easy and tasty. And this homemade Greek dressing looks and sounds amazing. Simple ingredients are always best! I’ll have to try it some time soon!

    1. Marissa says:

      I’m the same way, Leanne. Bottled dressings always taste a little off to me and often have a strange texture. As you said, simple is best!

    Yum! A quick suggestion that takes about a minute to achieve — dissolve the salt in the vinegar before you do the other steps. If the salt isn’t dissolved, you don’t get as smooth an emulsion as you want.

      Thanks, Lizzie! I’ll give that a try!

  4. Jeff the Chef says:

    You know, I love Greek salad dressing, but I’ve never made it at home. As you suggest, I bet it’d be fantastic on roasted veggies.

    1. Marissa says:

      Thanks, Jeff! It really is great on roasted veggies – add some freshness and zing!

  5. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella says:

    We always tend to think of other dressings before Greek dressing but I don’t know why as it’s delicious! Thanks for the reminder Marissa! 😀

      My pleasure! Thanks, Lorraine!
