Hi there, Ameera here!
Who doesn’t love a great oil-free salad dressing? We all know that Greeks LOVE their olive oil so we were kind of hesitant to even call it a “Greek” dressing. However, when it comes down to it, this dressing is made with a bright, zingy, fresh tasting Greek salad dressing in mind.
We love it, and we think you will too!
Tips for Success:
- Flavor Profile: This dressing tastes like a tangy, oregano infused vinaigrette. The mustard flavor is in the forefront, but not overly so. We used 1 Tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons of pure maple syrup; however, we can see how some would like more and others would like less.
- Grainy Mustard: If you enjoy a mustard flavor profile, feel free to add more.
- Dried Oregano: The flavor profile of this dressing is a vinaigrette with a beautiful accent of oregano coupled with the tanginess of the grainy mustard.
- Taste Testing Salad Dressings: There is an art to arriving at the salad dressing that perfectly suits your tastes. The best way to test salad dressings is to place a few leaves of lettuce (or other greens) in a tiny bowl, put a tiny bit of the salad dressing over top and mix really well, then taste test. Some salad dressings taste amazing before you dress the salad, then once dressed, they fall flat. That is because the salad dressing has to cover all the salad ingredients and it flattens the flavor.
- Sea Salt: Our family was completely divided over the amount of sea salt that this recipe needed. We ultimately ended up using 1 teaspoon. We suggest starting on the low side and building up from there.
Leftovers and Freezing:
Leftovers will generally keep for 7 days in the refrigerator. Store in a covered container.
This salad dressing cannot be frozen.
