Best Greek Salad Dressing & Greek Salad

Best Greek Salad Dressing & Greek Salad is a the perfect combination for a light lunch, or as a side during family dinner. Tangy lemon and herbs mixed with vinegar, oil, and sweet honey mustard drizzled on top of a bed of greens with feta, tomato, onion, and kalamata olives. I like to make a big bowl of this on Sunday and eat it all week!

Greek Salad Dressing

Here’s another lighter recipe, just in time for the super bowl recovery! Because if you’re anything like me, you have a serious wings-and-nachos hangover right about now. Best Greek Salad Dressing & Greek Salad pairs perfectly with grilled chicken, or just by itself. You can add more or less of any of the salad toppings to suit your taste, or even get creative, because the real winner in this recipe is the greek salad dressing.

Greek Salad Dressing

And while we’re on the subject of greek salad dressing, it’s amazingly versatile. I dip veggies into it, drizzle it on wraps, and even marinate chicken in it before hitting the grill. It works on pretty much anything, especially if you’re a herb lover like me! This one’s got all of the good herbs (because, you know, there’s a hierarchy when it comes to herbs. At least in my mind, there is…). Oregano (the king of all the herbs), then parsley, then basil. Finally, some flavorful garlic, and some honey mustard to add a really nice sweet tang to it. Top it off with some lemon juice, and you’ve got the makings of a truly tasty greek salad dressing.

Greek Salad Dressing

Now, let’s get down to this greek salad here. It’s really, really simple to make, and will take you no time at all. All I did was chop up some romaine lettuce, and topped it with a handful of feta, some chopped up tomato, red onion slices, and another handful of pitted Kalamata olives. There are other things you could add to a greek salad, but I picked a handful of my favorite toppings. Also, when you decide to impulse-buy feta cheese from Costco, you have to come up with some good recipes for it!

Greek Salad Dressing

You definitely have to shake this greek salad dressing pretty well before using. The two biggest ingredients in the greek salad dressing are olive oil and apple cider vinegar. And if you’ve every heard the old saying, “They’re like oil and vinegar!” It’s because of what you’re seeing right here. It separates, leaving some nice layers in the dressing. Which is quickly fixed with an easy shake, so try to get a salad dressing bottle with a lid! On another note, when you see this oil and vinegar separating here, you can feel good knowing you’re eating something natural without a ton of added ingredients. When it comes to healthy foods, homemade is the way to go!

And if you’re really in the salad mood, you might also like this Grilled Chicken Salad & Thai Peanut Dressing. It’s another one of my dinnertime favorites!

Greek Salad Dressing

And now that I’ve topped my salad, I can get back to thinking about what to do with the rest of the dressing that I made. Feel free to add more or less of the greek salad dressing to your salad. I usually double the recipe, and use the leftovers to marinate chicken. Or, it lives in my refrigerator until I’m in the salad mood. Or the dipping mood, or the salad wrap mood…

The possibilities are endless!

      Hi Brianne, because this has some ingredients other than the vinegar and oil, I definitely store this in the refrigerator. I just take it out a few minutes before I use it, to let the oil become liquid again, and give it a good shake right before using. It should be good for about a week. Hope that helps! :)

    I made this yesterday, but instead of dried herbs, I used fresh (3 times as much, since dried are more concentrated than fresh). Other than the fresh for dried swap, I made it exactly as printed. It was great!! I've never been satisfied with store bought Greek dressings. Thank you for solving the problem with a great recipe!
