When I make this I use half olive oil and half canola oil. It just seems a little bit lighter and refrigerates better than all olive oil. I also use my immersion blender and it emulsifies the dressing and it becomes quite creamy. The same goal could be achieved by putting all ingredients except the oil in a blender. While blender is running, drizzle in oil. Wonderful flavor and also very good as a dressing for pasta salad. HINT with pasta salad: I make mine the night before but keep the pasta refrigerated separately from the veggies. I pour the dressing over the veggies and let them marinate overnight. Combine with pasta just before serving. Great flavor and pasta does not get mushy or fall apart.

Great combination of herbs and spices, however the vinegar was way too strong. I use a very good red wine vinegar that i have used for years. I have never seen a dressing that used vinegar and oil in equal amounts or ar in this case even more vinegar than oil. In order to make it eddible I had to add more oil, 1/3c of water and 2 tsp. of Splenda.Now I love it. Next time I will only use 1/2c vinegar.

This was a very flavorful and delicious dressing! I had this on some Greek salad and it was great! It was very herbal and the oil/vinegar seemed well balanced. Definitely a recipe to keep on hand. Thanks so much!

This is a great salad dressing. I did make some changes to suit my taste. I used canola oil instead of olive oil. I only used 3/4 cup red wine vinegar. I omitted the rosemary and added 3 tsp of dill weed. I deleted my other Greek Salad Dressing recipes because this one is the best!

Was looking for a Greek Salad Dressing to use with a pasta salad I was making, and this one looked good. Made it and family loved the flavor of it on our pasta salad. Will be using this on my pasta salads now, instead of buying it. Made as written. Thank you for sharing it.

Thank you!!! So many of the dressing recipes are way too oily for me and my family. I left the rosemary out of this dressing and used canola oil & it was really good. The best of the Greek dressings I have tried from 'Zaar. Nice and zesty, and perfectly flavorful without the rosemary. Best of all, it didn't taste like oil.

I did not use this as a salad dressing. In fact, I am not sure I will because I like a thicker dressing for salads. However, I made this up to marinate some chicken legs and it was awesome. The chicken really absorbed the flavor and everyone liked it.

I had no red wine vinegar so I substituted cider vinegar and added 2 tbsp lemon juice and a few healthy dashes of balsamic vinegar. Came out perfect. Thanks for sharing!
