Greek Dressing 

by Flavia Del Monte❤

Home Made Greek Salad Dressing

A great trick and way to save time for you during the week is to make a pre-made salad dressing. Its not store bought so you know exactly what goes in it. And the trick here is to use your almost finished dijon mustard container!!

First, let me start by telling you about Turmeric. Turmeric is mainly found in Indian cooking. Fortunately it is also found in mustard and some dijon mustards. Turmeric is found to be beneficial in many ways such as: detoxify liver, anti- inflammatory, aiding in fat metabolism and helps to maintain weight, among many others.

Reason why I am stating this? For you to make sure when you purchase Dijon Mustard, you look for this ingredient on the bottle.

Now here is the Recipe. Enjoy!!

Greek Dressing
Recipe type: Appetiser
Cuisine: Greek
When you are nearing the end of your Dijon mustard bottle, approximately 1 to 2 teaspoons left, simply add these ingredients:
  • ¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tbs Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tbs Red Wine vinegar
  • 1 Minced Garlic Clove
  • Pinch of salt and Pepper
  • 2 Pinches of Basil and Oregano Leaves
  1. Close Bottle and shake together and Presto!!

    What size is your bottle of your dijon mustard? I’m not in the US and not sure if it is the same size. (Not even sure we can find it, but I can probably make my own by looking on google.) 🙂

    What if you HATE mustard!? 🙂 What can I sub. it with? Thanks!

  • Heather C. says:

    Yay! Thanks for the yummy salad dressing recipe 🙂 I’m not one of those people that can eat a salad dry and I really don’t like using store dressing (have you seen the ingredients-yuck!) but it gets kind of old using homemade salsa as a dressing all the time. Thanks for giving me something to rotate in. You’re the best Flavia!

  • DJ says:

    The recipe sounds great but I see that you’re using tbs, Tbs and tbsp all to represent tablespoon. I’m just learning how to cook so I consistant abbreviations helps make it easier to use that recipe. Thanks!

      DJ, what helps is to just look for a “b” and it SHOULD mean taBlespoon! ..will help with future recipes you may find on the ‘net!
      However, I do know that sometimes people use just a little “t” for teaspoon and big “T” for tablespoon…if you ever see t versus T.

  • K says:

    What kind of expiry date would be on this (i.e. how long would this last in the fridge)??
    Or I should re-phrase that question – how long can you keep this in the fridge before it goes bad?

  • Rachel says:

    I have a problem relating to the half price birthday sale; i have been trying to purchase the full bodylicious workout but my paypal or visa account isn’t accepted for some reason, all the details are correct and have purchased the flavalicious program before with no problems. I;m based in Ireland so don’t know if that’s an issue for postage? Time is running out for this offer and would really like to purchase the full bodylicious program!! Help!!

  • Jabeen says:

    I wanna try this dressing but I have a question do red wine vinegar and apple cidar vinegar contain alcohol?
    Thank you:)

  • Jabeen says:

    Hey Flavia,
    Can you substitute the mustard by making a turmeric and water paste?
    It’s just that I HATE mustard!
    Thank you 🙂

    • Anna says:

      You probably don’t taste the mustard very much but give it a try with the turmeric paste and see! 🙂
      All the best,
