Classic Greek Salad Dressing

Greek salads are one of my go-to favorites.

I love the combination of crunchy romaine lettuce, crisp cucumbers, sweet tomatoes and red onions, all smothered in a garlic-y vinaigrette and topped with feta cheese. It’s the perfect combination of flavors!

Other than an assortment of fresh ingredients, all you need to create a good Greek salad is a delicious dressing. This version calls for raw apple cider vinegar, which unlike other vinegars, is known for it’s health benefits. Raw apple cider vinegar is thought to support a healthy immune system, promote digestion, balance pH, and help control blood glucose levels. When paired with a high quality olive oil, you’ll also be able to assimilate more of the nutrients in your salad–> many of which need fat to be fully absorbed.

I hope you enjoy this vinaigrette as much as I do!

Classic Greek Salad Dressing
serves 6

Adapted from Ina Garten

Ingredients:

2 small garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3 Tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

Combine all of the ingredients in a glass jar, and whisk together until emulsified. (I like to use glass mason jars for this purpose, so you can just screw on the lid and shake well!) Like most dressings, the flavor will get better as the ingredients meld together, so for best results, wait at least 30 minutes before serving over your favorite salad ingredients.

Leftover dressing can be stored in the fridge for up to a week.
