Tasty Greek salad dressing recipe. This recipe is very quick and easy to make and a delicious healthy recipe. A great alternative salad dressing which is good for you too.
This dressing is used on a daily basis by Cypriots. They eat loads of salad. Usually a Greek village salad which consists of seasonal vegetables. They love to drizzle this olive oil based salad dressing over their salad.
To ensure your salad doesn’t become soggy, let everyone take a portion of (link)Greek salad, then add their own Greek salad dressing.
If there is any salad left over, without the dressing on it, cover the salad bowl with foil and pop it in the fridge. It will still be crisp and fresh the next day. It’s salad dressings that make the salad wet and not very attractive looking the day after.
So here goes...
Greek Salad Dressing Recipe
You will need;
1 Tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil per person
1 teaspoon of Red Wine Vinegar per person
A little Sea Salt
In a bowl, whisk the Olive Oil and Red Wine vinegar together. Alternatively, put the ingredients into a small jar with a tight lid and shake well. The mixture will turn to a light coloured mixture.
Add a little Sea Salt to the Jar and shake again.
Or let everyone add the sea salt to their own portion.
A salad dressing dispenser is really handy for shaking and dispensing.
For extra flavour, add a teaspoon of Greek oregano to the mixture.
Also try this! Alternate Greek Salad Dressing
Instead of using Red Wine Vinegar try mixing balsamic vinegar with the olive oil. This is my favourite, I love to dip Greek bread (link) into the leftover dressing, it’s really yummy and healthy too. Promise!
Use Fresh Lemon Juice with the Olive Oil.
Keep any leftover Greek salad dressing in a tight container and store it in the fridge.
