If you’re looking for a great tasting salad dressing that is perfect to drizzle on any mixed green salad, may I suggest this one? The recipe makes a small batch (enough for 4 small servings). It’s a great way to compliment any salad (especially a GREEK salad!). This salad dressing can be made easily in just a few minutes, and I think you will really enjoy it.

What’s In The Salad Dressing?

The ingredients for the salad dressing are olive oil, red wine vinegar, sugar, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and chopped kalamata olives. Kalamata olives are a type of Greek olive, that have a wonderful, tangy flavor, and add tons of flavor to the dressing. YUM.

Getting the ingredients ready to make the salad dressing.

How To Make This Easy Greek Salad Dressing

Finely chop the pitted kalamata olives. You want them fairly small. The recipe only used 6 olives, but let me tell you, they will add a LOT of flavor to the salad dressing. You can store the rest of the jar of olives in the refrigerator for another batch later on!

Add the chopped olives, and the rest of the ingredients to a small jar or container with a lid. One “small batch” of this salad dressing is only about 1/3 of a cup, so you won’t need a large container, unless you plan to double or triple the recipe.

Kalamata olives are finely chopped, and add great flavor to this salad dressing.The ingredients for the easy Greek salad dressing are placed in a sealed container.

Cover the jar or container, and (holding the lid on), shake the easy Greek salad dressing vigorously for about a minute. This will allow the sugar to dissolve, and the oil and vinegar to emulsify, and “come together”. That’s IT! See how EASY that was?

Pour the easy Greek salad dressing over a wonderful Greek salad OR you can use it on any mixed green salad that you enjoy.

After shaking the jar, the Greek salad dressing is emulsified and ready to use.Drizzle the salad dressing over a favorite Greek salad.

Storing The Salad Dressing

Store any leftover dressing in a covered container in the refrigerator. The olive oil may solidify once chilled, but all you need to do is remove the jar from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before using again. It will return to room temperature, and then just give it a few good shakes before using.

The recipe can be easily doubled or tripled if that is more convenient for you.  The yield from this small batch is approximately 1/3 cup, which is enough for several side salads (1 Tablespoon per side salad), or one large salad.

Hope you enjoy this delicious salad dressing. I enjoy keeping a small batch around for variety, and just used it last evening on a delicious mixed green salad. It’s really good! Thank you for stopping by, and I truly hope you enjoy your day.
