Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (90g) extra virgin olive oil Note 1
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons each: freshly squeezed lemon juice Note 2
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper

Instructions

  • DRESSING: Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a glass jar. Shake thoroughly to combine, making sure no honey or Dijon is stuck on the bottom. Use a spoon to stir, and then shake again if needed. Refrigerate until ready to use. To serve, shake dressing again, right before adding to the salad, and then drizzle over salad.
  • STORAGE: Store in the fridge until ready to use. In an airtight container in the fridge, this dressing will keep for 5-7 days. Heads up: Leftover dressing will separate and may even clump a bit (this is because olive oil solidifies at cold temperatures). Simply let the dressing stand at room temperature for about 15-20 minutes and then vigorously shake to re-combine. Then it's ready to use again!

Notes

Note 1: Olive oil: The better the olive oil used, the better the flavor of the dressing will be. We recommend extra virgin olive oil for this recipe.
Note 2: Honey and Dijon mustard: Since the vinegar and Dijon offer a fair amount of tang, so we like balancing that out with some honey. If you'd prefer the dressing to remain tangy, leave out or reduce the honey. For a sweeter and less tangy dressing, add additional honey, slowly, and to taste. We love Grey Poupon® Dijon best. Make sure to use Dijon, not yellow mustard. There’s a big flavor difference! The Dijon further enhances the tanginess of the dressing.
