EASY GREEK SALAD DRESSING (SMALL BATCH) 



I never buy bottled salad dressing as it's so easy and quick to make, like this Easy Greek Salad Dressing.

It's super quick to make and tastes fab, with all those summery Greek flavours.

It's got a lovely zing from the lemon and vinegar.

Whip a batch up and keep it in the fridge until you need it.

The flavours just get better.

JAM JAR SALAD DRESSING


If I'm just making enough dressing for two salads (my son won't try salad dressing), I make it up in a small glass and mix it with a fork.

I know, classy right?

If I'm making enough for a few salads, I'll make it in a old, clean jam jar and keep it in the fridge until I'm ready to use it.

So next time you finish a jar of jam, mayo or pickle, wash that jar, remove the label and set it aside for your salad dressing.

HOW TO MAKE A GOOD SALAD DRESSING



A good salad dressing should always start with the basics of oil and vinegar.

After that, you can play about adding different flavours.

Depending on what you add the dressing can be a vinaigrette style dressing or a creamy dressing.


SALAD DRESSING TIPS


  1. The vinegar can be exchanged for other acidic ingredients like lemon juice or lime juice.
  2. Sometimes a salad dressing will have both vinegar and an acidic fruit juice.
  3. If you are adding a sweeter fruit juice like orange or mango, then I would suggest adding vinegar too for zing.
  4. Adding fruity zest adds even more flavour.
  5. To make a dressing creamy, you can mix in vegan plain yoghurt, vegan creme fraiche or vegan cream.
  6. You can also add dried or fresh herbs.
  7. Some people love crushed garlic in a dressing, but it's not for everyone.
  8. Add chilli flakes to give a bit of heat.
  9. Always remember to season your salad dressing with salt and pepper.
  10. Before you drizzle the dressing, have a taste to make sure you have the right balance of flavours.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE GREEK SALAD DRESSING



You don't need any fancy ingredients to make a good Greek Salad Dressing. 

I added fresh parsley this time, but I usually just use dried oregano, so add it if you like.

  • Olive oil
  • Lemon juice
  • White wine vinegar
  • Wholegrain mustard
  • Dried oregano
  • Fresh parsley (optional)
  • Salt & pepper

HOW LONG WILL SALAD DRESSING KEEP?



Keep fresh salad dressing in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

Store it in a tightly sealed jam jar, glass bottle with a lid or an airtight container.

Just take it out every time you need to dress a meal.

    1. We've not been to Greece but had many amazing Greek salads in the south of Cypris which is Greek. The dressing makes all the difference.
