How To Make Greek Salad Dressing

The best Greek salad dressing is made with simple ingredients you likely have on hand. Use fresh herbs and spices if you have them and lots of feta cheese!

  1. Pulse all of the ingredients (except olive oil) together in a blender.
  2. Slowly add in the olive oil so it is completely emulsified in the vinegar mixture.

Perfect for topping a classic greek salad or marinating chicken souvlaki!

How to Store Greek Salad Dressing

Just like any other dressing that has been opened! Keep it tightly sealed in a cruet or an old salad dressing bottle and refrigerate until you are ready to use it again.

Since homemade dressing doesn’t have any preservatives in it, use it up within a month. This won’t be hard since there are so many great ways to use Greek salad dressing!

Other Delicious Uses For Greek Salad Dressing

The great thing about this dressing is that it serves so many amazing purposes!

  • It is a super easy topper on a cold pasta salad!
  • It makes an excellent marinade for beef, pork, chicken, and seafood.
  • Try as a tangy dipping sauce on a veggie platter or for a creamy dip, add about 1/2 a cup to sour cream to 3 tablespoons of dressing.
  • Or even toss with whipped mashed potatoes.

Did you know you can even toss it with popcorn? Sprinkle a little parmesan on top for a gourmet treat! Drizzle Greek dressing over roasted or sautéed veggies like these grilled brussels sprouts.

  1. This dressing recipe is different from the one that is given with the Greek salad recipe. Why is that?

    1. I’ve never made Greek salad before and I really want to use the dressing that is the best. Given the comments, I’ll try this one first. Thanks for the variations!!

    2. Both dressings are delicious just different variations of a Greek dressing! Let us know what you think of this one :)

  2. Made this earlier and omg, I thought my previous Greek salad dressing was good, but this one is really really good!5 stars

  3. This is a really good and quick dressing. Used it to top a quinoa salad. Would definitely make again. It’s a little sweeter than I prefer so I’d use a little less honey but otherwise it’s perfect!5 stars

  4. Made it without cheese, I didn’t have any. It was still delicious. Now I’m anxious to make the other salad dressings4 stars

    1. So glad you loved it Joan! You will have to let us know if you find any other favorites :)

  5. Greek Salad is my favorite. Although we’re Italian, we also love Greek food. It must be that Mediterranean way of eating which we share with the Greeks.5 stars

  6. Very similar to what I’ve been making for Greek salads and to marinate my chicken skewers for years. My only changes when using as a marinade are to use fresh garlic in place of garlic powder. But powder is the safer choice if making a larger batch to use as salad dressing. You can also try using white wine vinegar for a lighter flavoured dressing. But this is a fantastic, fresh tasting dressing either way!5 stars
