I use this Greek salad dressing recipe 99.9% of times on any dish that I want to add Greek flavor. It has the perfect balance of lemon, garlic, and oregano. It stores really well in the refrigerator for up to one week.

The best part is you can use it over and over on green salads, quinoa salads, or pasta salads. Pretty much any type of salad that requires some type of Greek dressing recipe or Greek vinaigrette.

Units Scale

Yields: 1/2 cup

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed with side of your knife then peeled*
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3 pinches of salt
  • 1015 grinds black pepper


  1. Add all ingredients to a mason jar or any type of container with a lid. (I love this all-in-one dressing shaker). Cover and shake vigorously until combined. Adjust salt and pepper as needed.
  2. Cover and store in the refrigerator up to 1 week. Stir before serving.


*the garlic flavor gets stronger the longer the dressing sits, so if serving the dressing immediately, you can add minced or pressed garlic, otherwise, smashed garlic works great here as it gradually flavors the dressing
