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!!!

  • homemade dressing is THE BEST. just added to my shopping list, making this one TODAAAAAAY.

    • Girl you just made my day! Hope you LOOOOVE it! 🙂

  • Billy Bob

    I’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!

  • Less sweets, more burpees. This needs to be my 2017 motto 🙂

    • My entire body hurts just thinking about it! 😉
