This easy homemade vinaigrette is perfect on Greek salads or any kind of salad! It's tangy and flavorful.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Fresh Lemon Juice - do not use bottle lemon juice! Keep some fresh lemons around and this easy citrus press and you'll have fresh lemon juice whenever you need it.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - use a good quality oil, not your everyday cooking olive oil. I like to try different brands that I find at Home Goods or Marshalls.
Oregano - in almost all cases I prefer fresh herbs over dried. Oregano is the one exception. I think the dried has so much more flavor.
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper - any kind of salt will do as long as it's not table salt, which tastes so flat. We keep a pepper grinder filled with black peppercorns right next to our salt bowl.
Note - this recipe uses a traditional 3 parts olive oil to 1 part lemon juice. You can use play with the ratio of you want a stronger lemon flavor.
