So much better than bottled, this Mediterranean Salad Dressing with olive oil, red wine vinegar, and oregano is bright and flavorful. Amazing on Mediterranean chickpea salad, quinoa salad, greens, and grilled fish. Heart-healthy, kid-friendly, and done in less than 5 minutes!


Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
  • 3/4 tsp fine salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil


  1. Whisk vinegar, honey, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper in a small to medium bowl. Pour in olive oil while whisking to combine. Taste and adjust to suit your preferences.
  2. Store in a jar or sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Shake well before using.


This dressing is more tangy than classic vinaigrettes, as it has a higher vinegar to oil ratio. If you prefer a less acidic dressing, try adding 2 tbsp more oil and 1/2 tsp sweetener.
