Today I am sharing a tangy homemade dressing that I love on a good Greek salad – Greek red wine vinaigrette.
This dressing is sooo delicious, and I have used it in so many of my other recipes:
Y’all be sure and check those out. 👆🏻 I have gotten tons of positive feedback on those recipes. 👏🏻🙌🏻 Basically it is great on anything with feta cheese, anything Greek/ mediterranean.
I even have a video of that Greek pasta salad that shows how I make this dressing.
The ingredient list is pretty simple, and you will likely already have most, if not all, of these ingredients already in your pantry.
To make this red wine vinaigrette recipe, you will need the following:
- red wine vinegar
- olive oil
- garlic powder/ granulated garlic
- dried oregano
- dried basil
- salt and pepper
How to make red wine vinaigrette
Measure each ingredient, and add to a mason jar (or other container with a tight-fitting lid).
Shake to combine.
Alternatively, you can make this in a small bowl, and whisk the ingredients together.
Note: this recipe will separate after sitting. Note: dijon mustard is my emulsifier of choice, but I like this recipe better without it.
Also, store in the refrigerator, and take out 15 to 30 minutes prior to using to bring to room temperature. Why? The olive oil tends to solidify in the fridge. Bringing it to room temperature liquifies it again.
I hope y’all enjoy it! I make this all the time, and it is one of my favorite dressings.
