Say goodbye to sad salads forever! This Greek salad dressing recipe is zingy and bright, and you likely have all the ingredients in your pantry already.

Greek salad dressing

I first made this Greek salad dressing recipe to toss with a traditional Greek Salad, but once I had it on hand, I discovered that it tastes fantastic on so much more! It’s zingy, tangy, and bright – perfect for livening up side salads or making roasted veggies more exciting. The recipe calls for a handful of simple ingredients, so it’s easy to whip up at a moment’s notice. And once you’ve made it, it keeps for up to 5 days in the fridge!

If you ask me, everyone should have this Greek salad dressing recipe in their back pocket. Easy, healthy, and delicious, it’s just as at home on a weeknight grain bowl as it is on a special occasion salad. Try it once, and you’ll make it over and over.

    This was so delicious! My new favorite dressing. The only problem is not eating it all at one time!

    We loved this dressing! I was cautious at first from the strong smell of vinegar, but it tasted amazing on our fresh Greek salad. Thank you!

    Hello! Do you refrigerate your dressing? I made this a day or two ago and it was delicious! But went to pull it out of the fridge today, and it had solidified. It got back with some mixing, but looking back at the ingredient list I’m not sure it needs to be refrigerated.

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      Hi Danielle, I refrigerate it and then leave it out at room temp for 15 or so minutes to let it liquify before using. Give it a shake, and it’ll be ready to go.

    I love this recipe. Thank you. Could you buy chance list the nutrition facts?

      Hi Dawn, I’m so glad you love the recipe! We don’t typically calculate nutrition facts for our recipes. To get an estimate, I recommend using an online nutrition calculator like MyFitnessPal.


    No lwmon? I was surprised to see no lemon juice in this recipe. Doesn’t Greek dressing typically include the juice of one lemon?

      That’s the difference between Italian and Greek dressings.

    Visited Greece this year and found this recipe just like the wonderful salads we consumed. You must start with high quality olive oil, best from Greece or Italy. Stay away from blends.

      Hi Bob, I’m so glad you loved the salad!

    Just made this. Just whisked it and the smell is absolutely wonderful. I can hardly wait. I’m going to put it on my salad which is lettuce free and may not have only the Greek ingredients in it but it has a lot of nice fresh veggies in it that are nice chunks and I’m gonna add my Kalamata olives at the end. Just buy the wonderful smell that I’m getting from this in the bowl before it’s on the salad. I am quite sure this is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Thank you so much love and lemons because it is just one more amazing recipe that you provided to people like me who have no clue.

    I had been to the farmers market and had had all the makings of a nice horiatiki (Greek salad without lettuce).
    This dressing was perfect and I will definitely make again.

    Wanted a different spin on a pasta salad. Used this recipe doubled for the cucumber tomato black and green olives artichoke hearts red onion green peppers pepperoni tri color rotini pasta with shredded Parmesan cheese. Husband who doesn’t care for pasta salad or artichoke said it was amazing. Will definitely keep this dressing recipe in my rotation.

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      I’m glad you enjoyed the dressing!

  12. Alex Stenning

    Please can you clarify if the tbsp. Of lemon juice/ wine vinegar in the recipe is for the dressing only? Seems a little unclear

    • Jeanine Donofrio

      Hi Alex, the dressing has 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar.
