About the dish:

Greek dressing is a tangy and flavorful dressing that is commonly used in Greek salads or as a marinade for meats and vegetables. It combines the bright flavors of lemon juice, red wine vinegar, garlic, and herbs with the richness of extra virgin olive oil. Here's a recipe to make Greek dressing:


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, and fresh lemon juice until well combined.
  2. Add the minced garlic, dried oregano, Dijon mustard, and honey or maple syrup (if using). Whisk again until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  3. Season the Greek dressing with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the amount of salt and pepper based on your preference.
  4. Give the dressing a taste and adjust the flavors if needed. You can add more lemon juice for acidity, more vinegar for tanginess, or more honey for sweetness.
  5. Transfer the Greek dressing to a jar or airtight container and refrigerate it for at least 1 hour before using. This resting period allows the flavors to meld together.
  6. Before using the dressing, give it a good shake or stir to recombine any separated ingredients.
  7. Greek dressing has a vibrant and zesty flavor profile with hints of garlic and oregano. The combination of the olive oil, lemon juice, and red wine vinegar provides a refreshing and tangy taste that pairs perfectly with fresh salads, grilled meats, or roasted vegetables.
