Greek salad dressing doesn't have to be complicated or time-consuming to make. And what goes better on a Greek salad than olive oil? This oil and vinegar-based dressing is quick, easy and requires the most basic of ingredients. It's perfect for a salad with Romaine lettuce, spring onions and fresh dill.

The simplest of all salad dressings is a drizzle of Greek extra virgin olive oil and wedges of lemon on the side - squeeze to taste. For salads with feta cheese like the Greek Salad, consider straight olive oil (with a little water). For salads with cucumber, try oil and vinegar.

A favorite dressing used on Maroulosalata (photo), a salad of Romaine lettuce, spring onions, and fresh dill, is this simple, easy, and very Greek combination of olive oil, vinegar, and herbs.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

Whisk together in a bowl, or place in a tightly covered jar and shake to combine. The dressing will turn a light color with a creamy texture as the oil and vinegar combine.

Tip About Dill: If you can't find fresh dill for the salad, add 1 teaspoon of dried dill to the dressing.
