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 hardly ever buy salad dressing from the market anymore Marissa. So much better when they’re homemade. Will be adding this flavorful one to my list!

    I tend to make a lot of Greek salads in the summer when local tomatoes are at their prime. But trying your salad dressing is a good reason to make one ASAP!

    1. Marissa says:

      I’m the same way, Liz! Nothing like a summer peak tomato!! I’m excited for you to try this!

    Nothing beats homemade dressing! I love how they are so quickly to whip up and you can flavour how you like. Plus, no added junk. This Greek salad dressing sounds wonderful. Love the red wine vinegar base. Now I’m in the mood for a Greek salad…haven’t had one in ages!

      So true! Once you start making your own salad dressings, you can’t go back!! Thanks so much, Dawn!
