Easy Homemade Greek Dressing Recipe

Have I talked about Orangetheory with y’all yet? Ohmygosh I’m obsessed!

It wasn’t a love at first sweat sort of deal but nevertheless I’ve gotten attached. Things are getting pretty serious. We’ve even made it Facebook official!

Since I’m busting my booty in the gym all week long, it seems only fitting that my eats follow suit. While the occasional pizza Friday is still totally a thing here, I can’t eat like that daily. I feel like working out makes me want to eat healthier.

Less sweets. More burpees.

Easy Homemade Greek Dressing Recipe

Wait! Not more burpees! Please no more burpees!

My coach has a fondness for making us do weighted ultimate burpees and they’re oh so brutal. The first round is survivable, but if there’s a round two, three, or four anywhere in the mix you can bet your butt that I’m lying facedown on the ground by the end of it.

Or more often, directly in the middle of it.

Burpees: Throw yourself face down on the floor. Jump back up. Repeat. FOREVER.

The more salads I eat the less I have to do right? In my world the answer is an enthusiastic YES!

Let’s eat some salads guys!!!

Easy Homemade Greek Dressing

Since rabbit food is insanely boring all on it’s own, we’re going to sass up our salad game with this super simple, super tasty homemade Greek dressing. It’s easy, delicious, and many of us will already have all the ingredients on hand – woot!

In the mood for a creamy Greek dressing? This bad boy is super flexible! Use all of the below ingredients plus…

    Could the dried herbs be replaced with Italian seasoning in some equivalent?

    • Hi Misty! For an Italian style dressing you can! Here’s my go to recipe: Easy Homemade Italian Dressing that uses a spice blend.

      For a Greek style dressing the balance of dried herbs is a little different and the Italian mix has so many (delish) extras that the flavor will change. But in my opinion there are so many amazing ways to make dressing it’s aways worth playing mad scientist with what you have on hand. xoxo

    Hi. Made your dressing recipe and using it for a Greek salad with chicken. I guess I should have known better when I saw 1/4 of oil and 2 T of vinegar that it wouldnโ€™t make a whole lot. But for you to say that it serves 7 is quite a stretch. Especially when you are making a large salad for a dinner entree. If I like it I will definitely double the recipe.

    • Hi Karen! The recipe yields seven 1 TBSP portions. Most of my readers ask for the nutrition facts per spoonful and most packages of pre-made dressing also calculates it the same way, either in 1 or 2 TBSP servings. I will add some notes in the post to clarify.

  • Katherine

    When making this dressing, what did you use to make the salad and do you have the recipe for it?

    • Hi Katherine! The salad in the photos is a mix of leaf lettuce, sliced Roma tomato, pickled banana pepper, and a sprinkling of fresh grated Parmesan cheese. I try to make it work with what I have handy, lol! If you’re looking for a tasty greek salad that is bit more traditional, try my Greek Kale Salad which can be made with romaine, kale, spring mix, leaf lettuce.. anything you have on hand basically! xoxo

  • Angel

    Whatโ€™s the serving size and how many servings does this make.
    Also how can I make this creamy could I add 0% Fage yogurt?

    • Hi Angel! The recipe should yield approx. 7 TBSP so each serving will be a Tablespoon. To make a creamy dressing, combine all the ingredients from the recipe card with 2 oz crumbled feta cheese, 3 TBSP plain Fage Greek yogurt, and 1 TBSP water in a small food processor or blender. Blend until creamy and enjoy!

  • Ronica

    Does this dressing need refrigerated? I can’t wait to have for lunch tomorrow.

    Deliscious! Thanks for sharing! Can I double the recipe to make a weekโ€™s worth?

    • Absolutely! It’s crazy easy to double or even triple and go salad-crazy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Carly

    Can you use all fresh herbs not dried?

    • Always Carly! I love using fresh herbs in my dressings when I have them handy. Since dried are typically more potent, you’ll just want to use little extra fresh than the recipe asks for! I usually double the amount and then just taste as I go.

    Iโ€™m just not sure about the Dijon mustard. That is decidedly French, not Italian. I think I would lean towards leaving it out. Perhaps a squirt of lemon juice instead? I see a lot of home recipes using sugar. Thank you for not putting it in your recipe. There is no need for sugar.

    • The Dijon is there to emulsify the dressing (pretty nifty purpose, eh?). You can totally leave it out and add lemon juice (always a tasty addition to salad dressings! I add it whenever I have lemons handy) but expect more separation between the oil and vinegar here.

      Hope you adore the dressing and get a chance to try it soon! xo

    This is a great dressing. I just made this and put it on a Greek pasta salad that I’m taking to a BBQ tomorrow. It turned out incredible. The only thing I changed was that in place of the salt I added some anchovy paste and also a pinch of sugar. Thanks so much for sharing.

    • LOVE the addition of anchovy paste – such a great savory umami flavor! Thanks Kim – glad you enjoyed it!

  • Jen

    Less sweets, more burpees. This needs to be my 2017 motto ๐Ÿ™‚

    • My entire body hurts just thinking about it! ๐Ÿ˜‰
