Greek Vinaigrette Dressing

Greek Vinaigrette Dressing

In the past year or so I’ve started to make more and more of my own homemade salad dressings. I just love knowing what is inside of the dressing. It definitely isn’t as convenient as having a store-bought dressing resting in the refrigerator waiting for you to pour it on a salad. But in my opinion it can be a whole lot more tastier and doesn’t break the bank or cause you for an influx of refrigerated dressings!

Greek Vinaigrette Dressing

What is nice is that you make the salad dressing for dinner that night and maybe if your lucky you’ll have a serving of dressing left to use for lunch the next day. Then the following day you make a new dressing! The options are endless. I was making a Greek themed meal for dinner the evening I created this dressing. I just started throwing together ingredients as I always do and I came up with a delicious Greek Vinaigrette Salad Dressing.

Greek Vinaigrette Dressing

I layered crunchy lettuce on individual plates followed by rows of roasted red peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, kalamata olives, and a few pepperoncinis for good measure. Then I sprinkled crumbled feta over the salad. Topping this salad with the most divine Greek Vinaigrette Dressing on the plante. Ok… maybe I’m biased, but I think this is the most amazing Greek Vinaigrette Dressing! Whether you want to enjoy a traditional Greek salad with homemade vinaigrette or just want your go-to salad with a new dressing. I’m sure you’ll love this recipe.

  1. I love making my own dressing. They are so much healthier and taste better than store bought.

  2. This dressing sounds great! I don’t think I’ve ever had all-purpose greek seasoning before. Could i just double the other seasonings instead of getting that?

    Oh, I love making a homemade dressing for salad one night and then using it as a marinade for meat or veggies the next night. Delicious way to use it up!

    • Christine– All Purpose Greek Seasoning is kind of like a season salt. So you could just use a dash of salt and pepper in place of it. I too love using leftover dressing as marinades! Double Duty!

  3. I love homemade dressing! This looks gorgeous :)

  4. Thi is an awesome recipe for dressing, I’m definitely going to use this.. I always avoid store bought dressings and have been in need of a good homemade one!
