Homemade Greek Salad Dressing is so simple to make and is so much better than anything you can buy at the store! It’s bright, fresh with just the right amount of garlic and herbs. It’s so good drizzled over lettuce, feta, and olives and also makes a terrific marinade.
There’s a little secret about how A Southern Soul started. It was all because of my homemade salad dressings. Mr. SS has always loved them. The thing is, I’d make a dressing, we’d rave over it, then I’d forget how I made it. After a bit of fuffing and puffing, I was coaxed into writing down the recipes and writing this blog. This story seems quite funny but, I’m still making homemade salad dressings and my venture has turned into something special.
Homemade dressings are so delicious and this Greek Dressing is no exception. It can be made in a matter of minutes with simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.
This Homemade Dressing Is
- zesty and packed with flavor from dried thyme and oregano.
- has no preservatives or added ingredients – just pure homemade goodness.
- perfect to serve with a classic Greek salad made with fresh lettuce, creamy feta cheese, olives, and peppers.
- doubles as a marinade for chicken, pork, and perfect for flank steak.
- so easy to make that you’ll keep in your fridge at the ready!
Ingredients To Make Greek Salad Dressing
- Olive Oil
- Red Wine Vinegar
- Dijon Mustard
- Dried Thyme
- Dried Oregano
- Salt and Pepper
This dressing comes together in no time and you don’t need any fancy equipment to make it. Depending on how much dressing I need, I use two different methods to make it. Here’s what I do:
- I put all the ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake to blend.
- I add the ingredients to a small bowl and use a whisk to blend.
How Long Will Greek Salad Dressing Keep?
Greek Salad Dressing should be stored in an airtight container like a cruet or jar with a lid. Keep it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it. This dressing will keep for 7 to 10 days properly stored.

Love this dressing! There is something so satisfying about making something so delicious with all fresh ingredients. This is fantastic on the Mediterranean Pasta Salad. This has quickly become a staple in our home — occasionally adding shredded chicken — or on its own. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!
I am so incredibly glad that you have been enjoying this recipe, and adding your own spin on it! These are the comments I love to see, thank you so much for your support and your rating!
Donya, Every thing is here except the garlic can be pickled more or less, so why only the 7-10 shelf life? I could drink this so may need a giant jar.
I could almost drink it as well. I limited the length of time just for the purpose of food safety.
Have a great day,
This dressing has so many uses and it’s delicious!
Thanks for the recipe.
