Flavor of the Week: Greek vinaigrette — a popular dressing and marinade

Greek vinaigrette is an easy-to-make dressing or marinade that punches far beyond its weight, adding a fresh zing and herbal notes to everything from traditional Greek salads to roasted chicken.

The dressing is growing in popularity as consumers become increasingly interested in Mediterranean diets and flavors, and maintains its simplicity even with alterations to the basic method of combining vinegar, olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and lemon.

Greek vinaigrette’s presence on menus in the United States has grown by 32% over the past four years, with 41% of the population having tried it, according to market research firm Datassential.
