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.
