Restaurant Style Greek Dressing

PoppiYYZ | Jan 21, 201109:14 AM

Does anyone have a "Restaurant Style" Greek dressing recipe ?

For years I've been using a great "authentic" style Greek dressing for traditional Greek salad with just Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucumber, Red Onions, Olives and Feta. Occationally though, we crave having the lighter version served at Greek run family restaurants. The style seems to be very consistent from restaurant to restaurant but all my searching for a recipe has come up short.

After closely examining a particularly tasty Greek salad dressing at a local restaurant (I asked for dressing on the side), it seems to be mostly a very light oil, tiny bit of clear vinegar, and small amount of herbs (Oregano, plus ??). There doesn't seem to be much, if any, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, mint, or fresh garlic. Alas, the kind Greek lady running the restaurant won't part with the recipe...

Anyone know how to create the lighter Greek dressing ?
