Greek salad dressing doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming to make. And what goes better on a Greek salad than olive oil? This oil and vinegar-based dressing is quick, easy and requires the most basic of ingredients. It's perfect for a salad with Romaine lettuce, spring onions and fresh dill.

The simplest of all salad dressings is a drizzle of Greek extra virgin olive oil and wedges of lemon on the side - squeeze to taste. For salads with feta cheese like the Greek Salad, consider straight olive oil (with a little water). For salads with cucumber, try oil and vinegar.

  3. The dressing will turn a light color with a creamy texture as the oil and vinegar combine.


  • If you can't find fresh dill for the salad, add 1 teaspoon of dried dill to the dressing.
