Homemade Greek Dressing

In all honesty, I originally made this homemade Greek vinaigrette for the Greek pizza recipe. But after pouring it on my salad for lunch today, I knew I had to share it with you all as a separate post. After all, what is Greek dressing without a plethora of recipes to use it with?

This Greek dressing deserves to be highlighted. Try it with my Greek Chicken Souvlaki or Easy Greek Chicken.

  • Delicious Greek flavor – Red wine vinegar, olive oil, and a bunch of classic Greek spices add a taste of Greece to any recipe.

Greek Vinaigrette Ingredients

I really like this salad dressing shaker. Easy to shake, easy to pour, and you can measure right in the glass! Easy peasy (plus it has awesome Amazon reviews).

How to Make Greek Vinaigrette Dressing

This makes a delicious Greek salad dressing recipe, but here’s the thing… I don’t like Greek salad (can’t do tomatoes or cucumber), so I like to pour it over a bed of spinach complete with feta, chicken — and when I’m feeling dangerous, bacon.

Combine Ingredients

Combine the red wine vinegar, olive oil, garlic powder, oregano, basil, onion powder, Dijon mustard, ground sea salt, and pepper in a mason jar. Shake until well combined.

This homemade Greek vinaigrette is perfect on salads, as a chicken marinade, or on a Greek pizza. It’s the most popular recipe here on The Bewitchin’ Kitchen, and I can see why — it’s delicious.

Serve or Store

Serve immediately or store in the fridge until ready to use.

Extra Zesty Greek Vinaigrette

If you’re craving a lot of zest (like me) or you love Dijon — the extra teaspoon is delicious! Dijon mustard is one of my favorite things to put in homemade salad dressings … and soup!

I know the soup comment may have thrown you off a little bit, but trust me, throw some Dijon in broccoli cheddar soup and your life will be forever changed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Greek Dressing?

What is Greek dressing, anyway? A traditional Greek salad dressing is technically a vinaigrette as it contains olive oil, red wine vinegar, and lemon juice. A Greek dressing goes a step further by including Dijon mustard, minced garlic cloves, dried oregano (the key ingredient), and salt and pepper.

How Do You Store Greek Vinaigrette?

This Greek dressing will store in the fridge for up to a week. I recommend taking it out to soften a few minutes before you’re ready to use it. You can also pop it in the microwave for 15 seconds to soften it, as the fats in this recipe will solidify in the cold.

  1. This is such a helpful recipe, thank you!

  2. This looks delicious! Thanks so much for sharing at #merrymonday

  3. Thank you for sharing with Delicious Dishes Recipe Party! Hope to see you again this week!

  4. How many servings does the Homemade Greek Vinaigrette make? Also, what is considered a serving size?

    • Hey Keitha,

      You know, I didn’t measure it to be totally honest. Usually my dressings make roughly 3/4 cup and a serving is 2 tbsps.

  5. What kind of oregano is best to use…? Fresh, ground, or just dried bits??

  6. I prefer to make homemade dressings too. Thanks for the recipe. It was delicious! 

  7. Why can you only store it a week? What goes bad? I live alone and making homemade dressing and try to use it up in a week isn’t reasonable. All of the ingredients listed are stuff I’d keep for a lot longer than a week. Is there something about mixing them that causes them to go bad?  

    • You have a good point, Ellen! I simply state to store it for a week because in the past all dressings I have made are to be stored a week. I say it out of habit 🙂

  8. I am curious about the texture of my dressing. It looks like iI a onions or garlic in it. Is that the olive oil stiffening because of the temperature of the fridge? I have left it in the fridge for almost a week to allow the ingredients to marinate.

    • Hi Sarah,

      The oil will be stiff because of the fridge. Leave it out for 30 minutes before serving or zap it in the microwave if you need it fast. There shouldn’t be chunks in there (unless you used raw garlic) but there will be floats of the herbs/spices.

  9. 5 stars
    I used this as a dressing on a “super blend”-shredded Brussel sprouts, napa cabbage, kohlrabi, broccoli, carrots & kale. SO good. I ran out of red wine vinegar and had to use white wine vinegar instead and it was still a delicious dressing. Thank you so much. I love being able to make dressings at home that don’t have all that extra preservatives ! 🙂 I cannot get the stars to fill in, but it’s def a 5. 

  10. Hi, I think usually in any dressing the quantity of oil is double the quantity of vinegar, but here you did the opposite. Why?

  11. I used your recipe for a Greek pasta salad. Everyone loved it. So thank-you. I said a friend was generous to share her recipe.
