This salad dressing is actually a creamy vinaigrette and it is not confined to only salads. It is wonderfully delicious drizzled on steamed vegetables, tossed in pasta salads and as a dip for crusty bread.

Homemade salad dressings are always much more flavorful than store-bought products. Plus, you have the advantage of knowing there are no sugar or preservatives added.  If you have never adventured into the DIY salad dressings, this is an easy place to begin.  You may never buy another bottle of Greek salad dressing again.

What is Greek Salad Dressing?

Greek salad dressing is typically a basic vinaigrette of quality olive oil, red wine vinegar, and dried oregano. Sometimes fresh lemon juice is added. It is easy and fresh and lets the flavor of salad shine.

We ramped up the flavor profile of traditional Greek salad dressing by adding several other ingredients. This is a creamy version that tastes great on salad, pasta, steamed broccoli and other vegetables, or used as a dip. Sop this dressing up with a slice of sourdough bread. So good!

Ingredients for our homemade creamy Greek salad dressing.

This creamy dressing is chock full of fresh ingredients. It is thicker than our recipe for authentic Greek salad dressing and it coats your vegetables with a ton of flavor. Here is what you will need:

  • Bell peppers.
  • Feta cheese.
  • Garlic.
  • Honey.
  • Red wine vinegar.
  • Lemon juice.
  • Salt.
  • Dried Greek oregano.
  • Olive oil.

The feta cheese gives this dressing most of the creamy texture and an incredible flavor. Olive oil also makes the dressing creamy. If you add the olive oil at the end and drizzle it into the blender slowly, it will emulsify and give the dressing an extra creamy texture.

How to make this Greek salad dressing:

This salad dressing is a combination of a few basic everyday ingredients.  Olive oil, red wine, fresh veggies, dried Greek oregano and feta cheese.

Using a blender or food processor makes this Greek salad dressing super easy and ready in just five minutes. All the ingredients go into the blender or food processor at once. Just whizz them together until it is a thick creamy dressing.

To make a creamy Greek salad dressing,  add all the ingredients except oil to a blender.  With the blender running on high speed, slowly pour the oil into blender until mixture is creamy.

You don’t have to confine this dressing to green salads. It is an all-purpose dressing/sauce/marinade.  It even becomes a delicious dip once it thickens in the refrigerator.  We love it tossed with a dish of pasta, garlic butter sauce, and shrimp.

  • Pasta
  • Fresh steamed veggies
  • As a dip for crusty bread
  • Pasta salad

How long will this dressing last?

This salad dressing will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.  As it sits it will separate so give it a good shake before using to bring back the creaminess again.  A salad dressing container like this makes it easy to store, shake, and pour.

This Greek salad dressing is so good and so versatile you may want to make a double batch to have on hand.

Tips for the best creamy Greek salad dressing.

  • Use good olive oil! Not all olive oils are created equal. The California Olive Oil Council has a certification program with strict standards. It is an easy way to be assured that you are buying 100% extra virgin olive oil.
  • Use a good quality feta cheese. The kind that comes in whole blocks or wedges. Even better, purchase blocks of feta that come soaked in brine. The flavor is far superior to crumbled feta.
  • Use dried oregano. I know it may sound like fresh oregano would be better but the fresh herb will turn dark and dingy in this dressing.
