I love homemade salad dressings not only because I get to control the ingredients, but they are so EASY to make.

I recommend not making a ton of dressing at a time, but instead using fresh ingredients each time you make a salad. It doesn’t take a long time to whip up a new batch of homemade dressings and they make any type of salad taste so much fresher than when you use a store-bought version or even a homemade one that’s been sitting in the fridge for a while.

You can make this homemade Greek Salad Dressing in just a few steps. Serve it over this easy Mediterranean Salad and top it with fresh crumbled feta for that traditional tang that’s a signature of Mediterranean cuisine.
