Greek Salad Dressing

Greek Salad Dressing

I found this web page http://www.healthguidance.org/entry/11397/1/Greek-Salad-Dressing-Recipe.html on Health Guidance website for Greek Salad Dressings. There are three choices, I ended up with my own version, you can use one of their Greek  Salad Dressings or you can use mine, which follows.

Dry Ingredients First!!!

  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 gm) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 gm) black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 gm) basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 gm) marjoram
  • 1 teaspoon (5 gm) oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 gm) thyme
  • 1 clove garlic minced or 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 gm) dry garlic pieces

Wet Ingredients Next!!!

  • Juice of a lemon, plus sufficient water to equal 1/4 cup (60 ml) or 1/4 cup (60 ml) reconstituted lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup olive oil

I suggest using a 12 oz (360 ml) Ball canning jar with plastic cover, as depicted in the above picture. Place dry ingredients in the jar. Using a glass cup measure, such as Pyrex with US Standard and Metric markings, squeeze the lemon juice into the measuring cup, add sufficient water to equal 1/4 cup (60 ml). Then, add olive oil up to the 1 cup (240 ml) level. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients in the canning jar, screw cover on tightly and shake to mix ingredients. Store in refrigerator.

My refrigerator is set at 40° Fahrenheit (4° Centigrade) which makes the olive oil semi-solid, so I have to take the dressing out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before I am planning to use it, to allow the olive oil to return to it’s normal liquid state.
