Greek Salad Dressing

This salad dressing tastes like home to me :) I didn't have lettuce in my salads growing up, just chunks of cucumber, tomato, red onion, and feta like so, covered in dressing like this.

I'm warning you all, this dressing is tart. I wouldn't have it any other way, but if you want to dial down the vinegar and lemon and add more olive oil, my feelings wouldn't be hurt. The garlic and oregano round out the classic Greek flavors, and I'm doing my happy food dance.

I LOVE making a meal out of a big Greek salad with this dressing and grilled chicken on top. We do this for dinner at least once a month! I hope you all enjoy this recipe straight out of my family's kitchen.
