Greek Dressing

We wanted to try making fresh salad dressing, and was interested in adding Greek yogurt to make a vinaigrette. The original recipe can be found here, but we improvised it a little since it had a sharpness due to the vinegar and fresh garlic. The end result is a Greek vinaigrette that tastes light, fresh and tangy.

Ingredients:
2 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed
1/3 cup red wine vinegar*
3 spoonfuls of Greek yogurt
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/3-1/2 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil*
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions:
1. Whisk together the garlic, vinegar, yogurt and oregano until incorporated.
2. Stream in the olive oil as you continue to whisk, and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
* It’s best to let this sit for a little bit for the flavors to mingle before dressing your salad. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for a few days.

* If you want a more traditional vinaigrette, use 1/4 cup red wine vinegar and 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

Yields: 2/3 cup
