YUM! I halved the recipe b/c there is just the 3 of us and that was plenty. I did add less oregano and basil due to personal preference. After making the dressing I decided to add just a touch more vinegar and lemon juice until I had it where I wanted it. this is really a great tasting salad and the dressing is wonderful. I will def be making this again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Delicious recipe. One thing I did change was that rather than two heads of romaine lettuce I used mixed lettuce greens. Then I only made a third of the amount of dressing (which turned out to be plenty). Read More

This is amazing dressing...makes me so hungry when I pack a Greek salad for my boyfriend's lunch that I usually end up eating one too. Its always been my favorite to eat out but now that I know how to make the dressing we have it whenever we want...it's the key to a really good salad. Makes the perfect amount too. I send one serving for lunch and the rest fills a salad dressing bottle for 3-4 more servings. We marinate all the goodies and then toss with the lettuce just before serving. Don't forget the pepperoncini!:-) Read More

The only thing I would change is the vinaigrette. It was pretty strong. I'm not sure if it was the garlic that made it too strong or the dried basil and oregano. I'll probably reduce the amount of all of them next time (or pour less on the salad). Read More

Loved this! I made it in the morning put it in the fridge and served it tonight. I followed the ingredients to the letter except for halving everything as it would have been too much for what I needed. This is definitely a keeper in my books! Read More

A 5 star recipe!!!!!!! My family LOVES this salad. There is never anything left in the salad bowl. It is great as a side but we have added chopped chicken breast to make it a meal. I will continue to make this for years to come. Read More
