Why you'll love this recipe
- You can make it in 5 minutes with only 3 ingredients (plus salt and pepper).
- It's a delicious alternative to store-bought dressings.
- It can be enjoyed with a variety of dishes, not just Greek salad.
Dried oregano: I recommend Greek Oregano from The Spice House. I purchase it as a flatpack which ships for free.
- Use a combination of red wine vinegar and fresh lemon juice.
- Add some fresh minced garlic. (Please note that if you add fresh garlic, the dressing should be consumed within 3 days to avoid bacteria.)
- Give it a little kick with some Dijon mustard.
- Add additional dried herbs like parsley and basil.
For the complete list of ingredients with measurements plus recipe instructions, please see the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- Add the ingredients to a small jar or bottle with a tight-fitting lid.
- Shake well until the vinaigrette is emulsified and use right away or refrigerate for later.
But it's also wonderful on leafy green salads, salads without lettuce, and pasta salad.
Dressing will keep refrigerated in a jar or bottle with a tight-fitting lid for up to 2 weeks. Shake well before using. If the olive oil has solidified, let the dressing sit at room temperature for a few minutes until it liquifies.
The olive oil in salad dressing will naturally solidify when refrigerated at a low temperature. It is still safe to consume. Simply take it out of the refrigerator a few minutes before serving to allow it to liquify. Shake well to emulsify and enjoy.
Is dried oregano the same as ground oregano?
Dried oregano is made with oregano leaves that have been dried and crumbled into small pieces. It's not ground into a powder like ground oregano is.
If you don't have red wine vinegar, white wine vinegar is the closest substitute. You can use an equal amount.
