One of my most favorite and go-to salad dressings is this lemony Greek Salad Dressing. It’s not only great as dressing for Greek salad but also for pasta salads and marinade for chicken.


  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 23 cloves pressed or minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • pinch of dried thyme
  • big pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper


  1. Combine lemon juice, vinegar, oregano, thyme and salt and pepper in bowl.
  2. Using a whisk, slowly stream in olive oil and whisk into vinegar mixture. You will see it thicken up a bit (emulsifying) while combining.
  3. Store in a jar with a tight lid in the refrigerator after using. Always give the dressing jar a couple of shakes before serving. In my opinion, best at room temperature, so take it out a few minutes before using.


I tend to like more vinegar/acid in my salad dressings, so feel free to add more oil to your taste.
