I pretty much wing it.
Red wine vinegar.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Rubbed Oregano.
Couple dashes of sugar.
Fresh Cracked Pepper (a few different colors is nice too).
Sea Salt.
Fresh squeezed Lemon.
Fancy trick with lemon rind: Twist a rind over the mixture to mist with the "oil of the rind". If you are feeling froggy and exotic, you may desire to do the same with orange rind. DO NOT ADD THE RIND ITSELF. ([i]blech[/i]).
Optional:
Finely, Finely, Finely, diced Kalamata Olives.
Smidge of Anchovie Paste.
Basil
Dill
Fresh Finely, Finely, Finely, diced Garlic (Personally don't care for it)

Thanks for the reply MommaBear. Until I have made the recipe a few times, I don't do well with winging it the measurements.
Any good store bought Greek Salad Dressing suggestions??

hi Codyman,
I love Greek Salad and here's the recipe I use:
1/2 cup virgin olive oil
1/2 lemon juiced
1 tsp chopped fresh oregano
1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
when you make your salad make sure to use the kalamata olives and feta cheese drained and crumbled on top (about 8 ounces)
I also use tomatoes and cucumbers without the seeds .It really comes out good but cannot take the credit , its from Emeril.. hope it comes out for you ..Kathy Ann Also this recipe is somewhat small I always double it...

I'll have to pay attention next time I make it, because honestly, [i]I don't know the measurements myself.[/i] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
I generaly add the individual ingredients to a tomato/cucumber/feta cheese/onion salad and then toss. I try not to have too much dressing floating in the bottom of the salad bowl. I always add the red wine vinegar last, extra virgin olive oil first. I try to mix the salad after each of these is added.
It's your typical "Greek Country Salad". I usually serve Kalamata olives and Casari cheese (sliced in half inch by half inch by 4 inch strips, drizzled with olive oil and peppered with rubbed oregano) on the side.
A good loaf of flat bread makes the meal.
(and some wine) [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]
The only thing I can think of to really really make the meal is someone you love sharing it under a shady tree.
