Ingredients
 

  • 1/2 to 1 full teaspoon garlic powder, NOT garlic salt begin with 1/2 and add additional to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano flowers or dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup quality olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons red wine vinegar*** see note below

Instructions
 

Zoe's Copycat Greek Salad Dressing

  • Combine garlic, oregano or oregano flowers, basil, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Using the back of a soup spoon or your fingers, crush the mixture for a minute or two until the dry herbs are sufficiently crumbled. This can also be done in a spice grinder if you have one.
  • Combine both oils, the red wine vinegar, and the herb mixture in a mini chef prep or blender. Emulsify for 1 minute. Emulsify again for 15 seconds just before serving. Alternatively, this dressing can be made in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Combine all ingredients and shake for 2 to 3 minutes. You want to ensure that the salt is dissolved. Shake again, just before serving.

Notes

*** I prepared this dressing for my coworkers for 5 days of Greek salad lunches in our office.  I initially prepared with only 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar. After a quick tasting pow wow, everybody determined that increasing the vinegar would taste more authentic. Hence, the recipe as it’s presented herein calls for the full 5. I would encourage tasting as you go after each tablespoon addition of red wine vinegar to suit your personal taste.

    1. I hope you do try it, Renee! My coworkers and I had a little experiment this week with Greek salad….for 5 days! Well, it’ll be 5 tomorrow, but we pooled and bought the ingredients, and have been enjoying GIANT Greek salads all week. They are my taste testers!

  1. YOUR RECIPES ALL SOUND AMAZING, I JUST FOUND YOUR SITE, BUT THE ZOE’S GREEK SALAD DRESSING IS MISSING. I WOULD REALLLY LOVE TO TRY IT! THANK YOU

    1. Sara, I am as of right now, your BIGGEST FAN – thank you so much for letting me know that my text and links had dropped! I recently ported my site and I fear a few posts fell victim. I’ve restored the recipe and all of the links – again, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! x Jenny
