Costco. at one time, made a chicken salad with kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, grape tomatoes, and their rotisserie chicken. I loved it, and wanted to make it at home, when I asked what kind of dressing they used they said that they could only get it in bulk and that it was a greek salad dressing. So my next step was to find a recipe and this is the one I chose. I made it exactly as written except to use a little of the Kalamata juice along with the red wine vinegar. Also, all I had was bottled lemon juice so that's what I used. This stuff turned out great! My homemade version of the chicken salad was better then the stores. I also drizzled it over cut tomatoes and cucmbers for lunch. Excellent! Thanks so much for such an easy solution for my craving!
You are right, this is delicious! Just the right amount of tart and sweet! I had this over salad greens and loved it! Thanks! I did opt to use the basil and oregano.
Thanks for sharing the recipe. I love this dressing, and I love that I usually have all the ingredients for this already in the house, too!
Wonderful, all purpose, salad dressing. I used extra mustard and honey instead of sugar which I think helps it stay mixed in the refrigerator. It is as good as the expensive boutique salad dressing I used to buy before retiring. Now it is Recipezaar all the way. Why pay a premium for something that costs fifty cents in ingredients and takes just a few minutes to make?
Delicious! Even better the next day. I could drink this stuff! Thanks for sharing.
I love greek salad and this dressing was great. I made it and used it within the hour. I used the basil and oregano and bottled organic lemon juice. The dressing was even better the next day after it had time to sit in the fridge a little bit.
I've been making a lot of Greek salads lately and have tried several versions and dressings. This one is really good! I made as stated but just ran my garlic through my garlic press to save time. Nice flavor, interesting with the dijon mustard. I used it over a traditional Greek salad with lettuce. Thanks for posting, BeachGirl, I'll use this one again!
Love this dressing...It is as good as that at my favorite Greek restaurant. Don't leave out the Dijon mustard.
This is delicious! It has just the right tartness with a nice flavor of herbs, and is not overly oily. I served this over Greek salad and it was wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!
This was delicious! Exactly what I was looking for!!
