I make a lot of Greek themed recipes but until today, I haven’t shared my Greek Salad Dressing recipe. It’s nothing like the stuff in bottles you’ll find at the grocery store. It’s better. Way better – with just a few simple ingredients.

Of course it’s just what your Greek Salad needs but it’s also delicious over a garden salad as well. I’m also a fan of it as a marinade and last week I added a tablespoon of plain yogurt to the dressing and discovered another type of marinade for grilled chicken!

I’m not sure where where my obsession for Greek food started. Maybe it was after so many trips to Greektown one of my favorite areas of Detroit. The aromas are amazing but let’s face it – it’s the food that keeps me coming back and inspiring me to make these dishes at home.
