Greek Dressing

There’s not much simpler than a basic Greek style Vinaigrette, nor better, when made with an Extra Virgin Olive oil, a good red wine vinegar and oregano. It only tastes better the next day and after that! A little bit of this herbal, potent emulsion goes a long way.

  • 3/4 cup of Greek extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of good quality red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of crushed Greek oregano or Home-made Greek Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • a pinch of pepper.

Whisk together in a bowl, or place in a tightly covered jar and shake to combine. The dressing will turn a light color with a creamy texture as the oil and vinegar combine.

Put your Own Spin on It:

  • Use lemon instead of vinegar, or vary the herbs to your taste:  try using an equal amount of Greek Seasoning instead of the oregano.
  • Use over salads:  Tomatoes, cucumbers, red bell peppers, olives and feta cheese – combined with Romaine or not.
  • Use in Pasta Salads, too, with the above vegetables.
  • Brush a bit on top of a hamburger when it is finished cooking, baste chicken breast as it cooks.
