Irresistible Mediterranean flavors combined with zesty red wine vinegar creating an effortless classic Paleo 3 minute Greek dressing.
Oh hey there you. Do you have three minutes to spare? Ok cool, because today we are making homemade Greek dressing in those spare minutes.
Zippy, zesty, herby, oh so flavorful Greek dressing with just a hint of sweetness to balance it out.
This dressing is perfect to make so you can stay away from additives and preservatives found in bottled dressings. Because even if you find a clean dressing, some kind of preservative is keeping it fresh.
Let's not forget to mention this Greek dressing is Paleo friendly and gluten free. Being in control of ingredients you use is an awesome thing.
And since this dressing only takes a few spare minutes there is no reason not to whip this up. You don't even need special equipment. All you need is a jar with a lid and you're on your way to Greek dressing heaven.

Why I love this dressing
It's not like you don't have your fair share of Greek dressing recipes to try out there on the internet. But there are a few things that make this dressing different than other Greek dressings.
The list of ingredients may seem long but we are using all dried spices so it still comes together faster than having to chop fresh ingredients.
This dressing has basil. You usually only see oregano in most recipes, but I'm telling you it makes a big difference and you must try it. The other unlikely ingredient is onion powder. I think it adds a new depth of flavor that reminds me of the Greek dressings I've loved from restaurants in the past.
Let's not forget the amount of sweetness the honey adds is perfect. Like lick the plate clean, perfect.
- Avocado oil- I prefer an oil that doesn't have flavor I taste when I make dressings. If you substitute this I recommend a light tasting olive oil versus extra virgin olive oil which has a very strong flavor.
- Red Wine Vinegar- Nothing super fancy or expensive.
- Dried spices- oregano, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper
- Dijon mustard
