I love making homemade salad dressings like this Greek dressing. The ingredients are fresher, healthier and they taste far superior to the bottled stuff you can buy at grocery stores. Once you get in the habit of making homemade salad dressings, you’ll forget all about your old bottled store-bought favorites.

Classic Greek Salad Dressing Recipe

A classic Greek dressing recipe is usually made with olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic and dried oregano. But this Greek dressing recipe is my riff on the salad dressing served at one of my favorite local Mediterranean restaurants, so we add kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, capers and freshly grated Parmesan cheese (though you can use Feta instead). These extra add-ins really elevates this Greek dressing into a really special and thoroughly enjoyable dressing.

  • Sandwiches – drizzle over tomato and greens or mix a little dressing in with a little mayo and you’ve got an amazing sandwich spread! 
  • Marinade -this dressing doubles as a marinade for chicken or fish
