When it comes to making Greek salads, it only makes sense to drizzle Greek salad dressing on top.

But you’d be remiss to think that’s the only salad this dressing is good for. Greek salad dressing is extremely versatile and also a perfect marinade for anything you might want to toss on the grill in summertime – veggies, chicken, fish, you name it.

While it’s easy to whip up this recipe it always helps to watch a quick video. Give it a watch below!

What’s in a Greek Salad Dressing?

A traditional Greek salad dressing is really a Greek vinaigrette as it contains olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, minced garlic cloves, dried oregano (the key ingredient) and salt and pepper.

You can use virgin or extra virgin olive oil, but I think more important is the red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard and spices you use. Opt for quality ingredients like this organic red wine vinegar and Dijon mustard. And you know I’m a big fan of Simply Organic spices (did you see my Spice Drawer Organization video?).

Once you’ve got all your ingredients in a bowl, it’s as easy as whisking it all together. Then drizzle it on my Greek Salad, Greek Chicken Salad, or use it as a marinade on Greek Chicken Kabobs.

  1. The best ever.  I’ll never use another. Complete winner5 stars

  2. i have been making this dressing for years, its my go to for many different meals and uses, it works well for my braised Greek chicken recipe when I’m low on thyme. its great on fish as well !! Thank you, Chef Jon

  3. For me this dressing is far too acidic. I cut in half the lemon, vinegar and mustard and doubled the oregano and garlic. A touch of honey can also smooth out and meld the flavours.

  4. Awesome !! 5 stars

  5. One of our favorite dressings to use. Not only for salads but as a marinade. 5 stars

  6. If i add the garlic separately every time can i keep this longer in the fridge? 

  7. I didn’t have red wine vinegar so I used balsamic instead, but it was still delicious!5 stars

  8.  Very good-makes a summer salad of greens have that extra zing- I added capers and plain yogurt( 2-3 T) to ingredients. Everyone wanted recipe for dressing!! Thank you for sharing.

  9. I made this for our Greek Salad for supper last night. It was delicious with healthier ingredients than the $6.00+ salad dressing that I would usually purchase at the grocery store. Everyone ate it too. Will make again. Thank you.

  10. What olive oil do you use?

  11. I am a big believer in if you can make at home then do so. I came across this recipe and am eagerly wanting to make this. So simple that these ingredients are household which makes it so appealing.
    See you at dinner.

  12. I made this before and it was delectable. This time I forgot to whisk and it’s already in a jar. Can I just shake it to emulsify? 5 stars
