The name of this recipe says it all as this is The Ultimate Greek Salad! This makes a nice large family salad that was enjoyed by all. I made one small change in that I cut the olive oil in half as my lettuce was still fairly moist from washing, other than that made as written. We thought the garlic and oregano were the perfectly proportion to the other ingredients and DH who quite often does not like the stronger flavored onions thought the soaking did a nice job taking the edge off. Thanks for the post.

Excellent! Superb! I love this dressing and salad. I made as stated but increased the red wine vinegar to three tablespoons and added 1/2 teaspoon of sugar per other recipes I saw. Not too harsh and perfect for the salad. I used light feta in my version. If you are making a good sized salad it's a good idea to double the recipe so you have enough dressing. I'll use this recipe a lot, thanks for posting evelyn/athens!

I could literally drink this salad dressing, it is so good. I did add about 1/2 teaspoon salt to it, and in the salad I used half baby spinach, and I substituted fresh mozzarella for the feta. I love feta, but had just run out.

Yum! I love this type of salad, and this did not disappoint. The only thing I changed was the olives, I used garlic stuffed green instead of kalamata. Thanks for sharing! <br/><br/><br/>made for ZWT9

Made the dressing only...This was absolutely heavenly. The entire family has voted this our new favorite salad dressing! The first time I made it I made it exactly as written and it was delicious. The second time I added grated parmesan (the canned stuff) and then it was a very close duplicate of Olive Garden's house dressing. My suggestsion...use the red wine vinegar, don't substitute for another kind. I think this "makes" this dressing! Thanks, evelyn/athens!

This was a hit at a dinner party I just had. I think my guests liked the salad more than the main course! Dressing is fantastic, I may make a batch just to use on any salad. I will say I used a garlic press to make sure the garlic was really teeny tiny in the dressing, b/c raw garlic scares me a bit. But it turned out fantastic.

It's great. I prefer it with white wine. I also chop the tomatoes in smaller pieces and grated cheese. I also add more olives. The salad is perfect for the summer, when we have fresh veggies. The whole family loves it. I recommend it.

I made just the dressing the night before and tried it on a regular salad. I didn't think it was that great. However, the next day I made a proper Greek salad using it and wow was it spot on. I'm not sure whether it is just particularly suited to the unique blend of ingredients in a Greek salad or whether the flavors just melded over night. In any event, as a long time Greek salad lover - this recipe is a keeper!

I made this recipe as directed and it is scrumptious! The dressing is just right. I made an extra recipe of the dressing to marinate large cubes of chicken breast which we then grilled as kabobs and made the salad a meal. YUM

I love these salads, BUT, several years ago a friend gave me a recipe for one almost like this, but it had Mint instead of the Oregano. Just the aroma was so wonderful. The mint and garlic together was amazing. Now I wonder if that is not closer to Mediterranean than Greek. I lost the recipe of course.<br/><br/>Also it was lemon juice and oil. No vinegar. Does anyone have that recipe? I would go close to dying for it.
