Vegan, keto-friendly, sugar-free, gluten-free, this Greek Salad Dressing is a good staple to have in the fridge.  It takes about 10 minutes to whisk up and keeps in the fridge for up to 2 weeks!

The lemon juice softens the vinegar, giving a bright tang.  Fresh garlic and dried oregano add a zesty depth.  The savory flavors pair with a myriad of greens, vegetables, grains, pasta, and greens.  Works great as a marinade for grilled chicken or drizzled over steamed kale. Double up on the recipe to have on hand for quick meal prep, you will thank yourself!

Why make homemade Salad Dressing?

All too often, store-bought dressings are made with low-quality, inflammation-causing seed oils (canola, soy oil, sunflower, corn, grapeseed, rice bran, or safflower) because these are much less expensive to produce than high-quality olive oil.

The process by which these oils are made (heated to very high temps, then treated with chemicals to remove bad smells and dark color) is what is harmful to the body.  Research shows that consuming too much of these seed oils creates inflammation in the body, damages our immune system, creates metabolic disease, type 2 diabetes, and the list goes on.  Type 2 Diabetes did not exist until we introduced these “new” seed oils into our diets in the 1970s. A healthy diet consists of 2-4% of polyunsaturated fats, but now we are seeing an average of 10-20% of these oils in western diets, because of all the processed foods were consuming.

Store-bought salad dressing- even seemingly “good” brands that tout “Organic”  and “non-GMO”  are guilty of including these less expensive, harmful seed oils. Always check the labels.  For more info on seed oils – read this and scroll all the way to the bottom.

The thought of people taking the time to create a beautiful, nourishing salad, then dousing it with seed oils makes me shudder! So please friends, check the labels or make your own.

  1. I made the this last night for friends and it was amazing!
    I am so excited and am looking forward to eating more salad.
    Thank you!!

  2. This is very good but I added one tablespoon of agave. It needed it to balance out the acidity.

  3. Excellent. Exactly what I wanted, although I’m not too keen on a Lot of Oregano, so I put half oregano and half basil.
