Homemade Greek Salad Dressing - The only recipe you will ever need! So easy you will kick yourself for purchasing the bottled stuff.

Homemade Greek salad can be on the dinner table in 10 minutes.

I’m always disappointed when I order a Greek salad at a restaurant. Usually overdressed, limp and flavorless. We now make it at home and it’s 100 times better than any restaurant salad!

How to Make a Greek Salad

Seriously, on your table in no time flat!

First, make the dressing so the flavors can combine while you prep the salad ingredients.

In a small bowl or jar with a lid add the olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Whisk or shake the jar and set aside.

I prefer to make individual bowls for my family. This way everyone receives extra of what they like and none of what they don’t like. Also, everyone can control the amount of dressing. No one likes a drenched and soggy salad.

Chill the salad bowl, helps keep the fresh salad greens cold and crisp.

Roughly chop the romaine lettuce, thinly slice the onions and cucumbers, and slice the grape tomatoes in half.

In the bowl combine the romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, kalamata olives, feta cheese, and pepperoncini peppers.

Dress the salad season with salt and pepper if necessary, serve and enjoy!

We made this our meal with skillet bread on the side but it can certainly be a nice side dish.
