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.

That is such a beautiful Greek salad! I think I’ll make one today:)

Regina

I love using apple cider vinegar to promote healthy digestion, but find it so hard to use in dressings as the taste is so overpowering. Can’t wait to try this one though. I love so many of your other dressings!

Meagan

Greek / mediterranean food is my new favorite! Thanks for this awesome dressing!

Alia

The Greek salad looks yummy – loveee the taste of Bragg’s apple cider vinegar!

Must try this! Have made your Raw Apple Cider Viniagrette 3 or 4 times already and love it! I eat a salad for dinner every night and I use only that dressing. It is my favorite now, but I will give this a try. Love all your recipes!!!

Susan

I’ve been looking for a good recipe for Greek salad dressing, especially after having a great one at a restaurant during our road trip this summer. Thank you for posting this.

Penny

Love this (and so does my 3 year old)! Thank you!

Corinne

Made this today. AWESOME! Like the best restaurant dressings that you wish you could get at home. Thank you AGAIN, Megan! You have changed the way our family eats! That’s one lucky baby!

Stacey

I made this last night and it was delicious! Thank you so much. I LOVE your website!! I’m excited to try more recipes (I love smoothies).

Alexis @ Hummusapien

Just made this and it was great! I added some dried basil, too. Thanks for sharing!

This is kind of a weird question, but how large are your salads usually? This looks like a small plate. Is that typical of what you would actually eat or is it just for the picture?

    The way I see it, if the fork pictured is a salad fork, the plate is about 6.5 inches in diameter. If it’s a dinner fork, then the plate pictured is about 8 inches in diameter.

Made this dressing and to be honest I wasn’t sure at first. It did seem a little to oily and had quite a sharp taste. But once mixed with the salad it was absolutely gorgeous. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you

Kristina

This dressing is amazing. I usually can’t stand acv in salad dressing, but this is phenomenal. I’m addicted!

Susan

Love this dressing!! So yummy! My husband raves about it!! Thank you!!
I use avocado oil instead of olive oil! Fabulous dressing! My personal fave is your apple cider vinagrette! Love you recipes!

Ellen

I love the Greek salad dressing recipe. It is very close to authentic. However, a real Greek salad does not have lettuce. ( I am Greek) An authentic Greek salad is made with tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, slice green peppers, kalamata olives and feta cheese. You then top iit with oregano and salad dressing.

Sandy

This is one of my favorite recipes! Thank you so much!

Amelia

I just made this but did not have any apple cider vinegar so I used white vinegar. I hope I didn’t blow it!?

Jade

Hi. Just made this and it’s lovely. However, Im struggling to find anything to work out what calories this would be without signing up to sites. Can anyone help?
I’m basing the recipe doing 6 servings

Absolutely amazing. I am impressed. I love garlic and this is so perfect and not much of a vinegar flavor at all.

Julie
