I’m back with another salad dressing recipe! Today, we’re talkin’ Greek Salad Dressing. This summer, I’ve been seriously CRAVING those bright, fresh, tangy mediterranean flavors, and today’s recipe totally fits the bill.
This quick and easy, healthy homemade vinaigrette is obviously great for a leafy green chopped salad, but it can be SO much more than that.
How to use Greek salad dressing:
- As a salad dressing – obvi. 😉
- As a chicken marinade (It would be great for these greek kebabs)
- As a veggie marinade (roasted veg anyone?)
- As a pasta salad dressing (orzo pasta salad recipe coming soon!)
How would YOU use this Greek salad dressing?
As you can see, this salad dressing is SUPER versatile, which is why I love always having a batch in the fridge. Luckily for us, it’s also super quick, easy, and healthy.
What is Greek dressing made of?
Greek dressing is made of oil, red wine vinegar, honey, dijon garlic, and spices: oregano, basil, dill, onion powder, salt, and pepper! Throw everything into a mason jar, blender or food processor and you’re done!
Can you make Greek salad dressing the day before? How long does it last in the fridge?
You can absolutely make this dressing in advance. Store it in a sealed, airtight container in the fridge for up to a week!
Is Greek dressing bad for you?
While Greek dressing CAN be bad for you, this recipe is definitely healthy! I like using a 1:1 oil and vinegar ratio (vs the traditional 3:1 – 3 parts oil to 1 part vinegar) to lessen the calories. Plus, we only use a TOUCH of all natural honey for sweetness, then load up the spices for maximum flavor.
Can I make this easy Greek salad dressing vegan?
Yes! Replace the honey with agave or sugar and you’ve got yourself a vegan dressing.
