Greek salad dressing has a little too much bite for me, so I added some of the ingredients used in French vinaigrette. This is still fresh and tangy, and a nice dressing for summer salads.

I followed the ingredients and amounts to the letter except I realized last second I was out of Dijon. So I used a 1/4 tsp. of mustard powder as Dijon has white wine vinegar in it anyways! I thought this was lovely over a garden salad light and lemony. I did not find it acidic at all I wonder if that's because I used regular olive oil(not extra-virgin)or the powdered mustard? Or perhaps my white wine vinegar is more mild than others. I also let this sit in the fridge for a couple hours before we ate maybe that mellowed it out a bit. In any event I wouldn't change a thing love it!! Read More

The recipe author doesn't specify red or white wine vinegar (big difference between the two), so I used red (bolder flavor) for this recipe. I was intrigued by the "French-Greek" title of this dressing, but it wasn't tangy enough for me, and the lemon flavor dominated a bit too much. I'm sure there are many folks who would love the milder flavor of this salad dressing, and I don't want to discourage others from trying this. It's just not my personal taste preference, so please don't take this as a negative. Read More

I decided to Half the recipe because i was making a small salad. Between the Wine Vinegar( i used white) lemon juice and zest it was too acidic for my tastes. I drizzled in olive oil until it suited my tastes probably used the full amount of oil if not more for half the recipe. I suggest Halving the Wine Vinegar or doubling the oil and tasting as you go.

After reading the reviews from others I made some alterations. I reduced olive oil down to 1/4 cup; chose red wine vinegar and reduced down to 1/2 tbsp. and did the same with lemon juice. I also reduced lemon zest down to 1/2 tsp. I substituted white sugar for powdered white sugar therefore adding another 1/4 tsp. (1/2 tsp. all together) and used Himalayan sea salt instead of kosher for crushing the garlic. I added 1/4 tsp. dried oregano and a 1/4 tsp. dried basil leaves. With all of these modifications the dressing was fabulous. Read More
