GREEK VINAIGRETTE

Whip up this easy homemade Greek Vinaigrette in just minutes for authentic Greek flavor with most ingredients found in your pantry. With just the right hint of lemon and garlic this vinaigrette comes together in 5 minutes in a mason jar (if you have one) or any container with a lid. It will leave you craving more salad!!

I use this vinaigrette recipe 99.9% of times on any dish that I want to “Greek up” a little. It has the perfect balance of lemon, garlic, and oregano flavor. It stores really well in the refrigerator up to one week and the best part is you can use it over and over on green salads, quinoa salads, pasta salads, or pretty much any type of salad that requires some type of vinaigrette and/or dressing.

NOTES
*the garlic flavor gets stronger the longer the vinaigrette sits, so if serving the vinaigrette immediately, you can add minced or pressed garlic, otherwise, smashed garlic works great here as it gradually flavors the vinaigrette
