My House Greek Salad Dressing

Sunday, May 31, 2020
My House Greek Salad Dressing is one of the most versatile salad/marinades you will ever need to make.

It's one of the best Greek dressings for many uses and I have found plenty of meats, seafood, and sandwich recipes this goes perfectly with.

Keep a bottle in the refrigerator all the time for quick delicious dressing with so many uses.

I am sure you will come up with even more ideas than I did on your favorite freshly made spring and summer meals.

Whether you're grilling, using over pasta or just as a dipping sauce, this is perfect for just about anything you make.

Served in a sandwich with Homemade Pita Bread is another wonderful way to use this dressing!

Homemade Salad Dressing

I love homemade dressing, it's so much fresher, no preservatives and you can adjust it to your taste buds!

I make several kinds of dipping sauces you may have tried before or my favorite pasta caprese salad or ranch dressing.

Once you make them all homemade you will never go back to bottled dressings again.

If you love Greek foods try my favorite chicken recipe with tzatziki sauce.
