Homemade salad dressing are so easy to make and so much better than store bought! This homemade Greek style salad dressing is one of my go-to dressing recipes that I find myself making all the time. It’s basically a simple combination of olive oil, red wine vinegar and/or lemon juice with oregano, garlic, salt and pepper. (I usually throw in a little dijon mustard to help with emulsification.) All said and done it takes less than 5 minutes to make this dressing and you can make it to you own tastes! If you like your vinaigrettes tangy, increase the vinegar/lemon juice to oil ratio and if you prefer less, reduce it. You can control exactly how much salt is in the dressing and you know what all of the ingredients are! Make this dressing ahead of time and store it in a sealed container in the fridge, shaking it before you serve.
