The punchy flavors in the Quick Greek Red Wine & Feta Vinaigrette will transport your tastebuds.

Whether you have a favorite Greek restaurant or a favorite Greek Island, this dressing will save you the trip!

I love how the classic Mediterranean aromatics and herbs make this dressing sing. But its the salty tangy feta cheese that’s the star. Sweet honey and the acid from the red wine vinegar are the perfect balance.

Homemade is better.

Especially homemade salad dressings. No chemicals or preservatives.

Just real good ingredients.

Garlic, shallot, lemon zest and a touch of honey infuse a base of extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar. Fresh basil and oregano add familiar Greek flavor. While the feta cheese adds a nice salty finish.
