This recipe makes a ton of dressing but may be scaled down to half, plan ahead the dressing needs to chill for a few hours before serving, it will keep well in the fridge up to 2 weeks --- all ingredients may be adjusted to taste --- also see my Kittencal's Famous Greek Salad

YUMMM!! We really enjoyed this! The only things I did different were fresh basil (will try fresh oregano, too, once the herb garden gets a little bigger!). When I make dressings, I also make a thickened solution with water and cornstarch, then sub it completely for oil. Makes most dressing virtually fat free and works great! My hubby really enjoyed this and said I can definitely make again. Thanks so much for sharing!! :O)
Absolutely fantastic, easy to make, and all the ingredients were already in the house. 5-star, all the way!
I love this dressing. I do add more vinegar, probably an extra 1/4 cup. I works great with a mix of balsamic and cider vinegar as well, when I don't have red wine vinegar on hand. I am asked for this recipe a lot. Thanks for a delicious and easy salad dressing!
