The most delicious homemade Greek Salad Dressing made with simple pantry ingredients that tastes perfect over salads, veggies, used as a marinade, pasta salads and more!
I love making homemade dressings and this Greek salad dressing is truly one that never fails me! Simple to throw together and made with ingredients probably already sitting in your pantry, it’s the perfect dressing to throw on salads, drizzle over veggies or you can even use it to marinate chicken, fish or shrimp! No need to purchase store-bought salad dressing when it’s literally this easy to make your own.
Greek salads are one of my favorites to make during the week so having this dressing on hand in my fridge is always a must. Greek salad dressings are typically made using a mixture of olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, Dijon mustard and oregano, but I also added in some fresh lemon juice and basil to really brighten up those flavors.
Ingredients You’ll Need
This easy Greek salad dressing requires just a few simple ingredients that you probably already have at home in your pantry or fridge! Here’s what you’ll need:
- Olive oil – I like to use a good olive oil that doesn’t have to be expensive, just make sure it’s cold-pressed and organic for the most flavor (in my opinion)
- Red wine vinegar – this adds a nice tangy flavor that goes perfect with the olive oil and lemon juice
- Lemon – I just love the bright, fresh flavor lemon juice brings to this dressing. Feel free to add a little bit of the zest too for even more lemon flavor!
- Dijon mustard – this adds a little zip and helps to emulsify the dressing
- Garlic – I like to use fresh garlic in my salad dressings, but a 1/4 teaspoon of dried minced garlic or garlic powder will work if that’s all you have on hand
- Seasonings – a combination of dried oregano, dried basil, salt and pepper
How to Make Greek Salad Dressing
Making homemade dressings and vinaigrettes are literally SO dang easy and takes less than 5 minutes! Simply whisk together (or shake!) all the ingredients in a bowl or jar…and that’s it! Then just store the dressing in a sealed airtight container in the fridge until you are ready to use. This dressing will last up to 5 days in the fridge, but definitely tastes best as fresh as possible. I also like to make my dressing a few hours ahead of time before serving so that those flavors can really marinate!
I personally like to store my dressings in mason jars because they have a nice tight seal, they are easy to take on-the-go, and you can just add all your ingredients and give the jar a good shake!
