Just what I was looking for!
I wanted something light and not too sweet for salad that would compliment pasta and chicken parmigiana, and this was perfect. I didn't have red wine vinegar and used apple cider vinegar instead, and garlic powder instead of raw garlic as some reviews said it was too garlicky; I also used dried spices as that was what I had on hand, skipping the marjoram. Per other reviews I also used less lemon juice. I look forward to trying this with red wine vinegar, it's a good base to play with!
VERY garlicky! It was a bit too much for us. If I make it again, I will only use 1.5 or 2 cloves. The lemon juice and red wine vinegar was different, but surprisingly good together.
Tastes pretty good! You said 1 lemon, but I would probably cut that down since it can be overpowering. But then again I had about 20 minutes after making it.
I made this for my greek salad at a BBQ yesterday. I made it the night before and placed it in the fridge in a closed container, only because it calls for fresh garlic. It also helps with the flavor making it 24 hours prior. The next day, I took it out 3 hours prior to get room temperature. I kept shaking it every 20 minutes. 10 minutes before eating, I poured a little on at a time (till salad was wet), tossed it and topped w/ feta. Everyone loved it!
Absolutely delicious. I opted against the marjoram because I didn't have any and whipped it up with my stick blender.
Wonderful! Tangy and light. Not overpowering. Perfect with a Greek salad.
My husband and I really loved this vinaigrette, which I served over a simple side greek salad. He even doused his rice with it he liked it so well! I was out of oregano and didn't have marjoram either, so subed thyme and savory. I was too lazy to chop the fresh herbs even though I had them and it was still delicioso! Next time will try the fresh.
I didn't quite follow the recipe -- I omitted the garlic and marjoram, and put in a little extra dried basil and dried oregano -- but my version was amazing. I've been looking for a recipe that is similar to the Greek vinaigrette at a little cafe I like, and this is it! I made a Greek pasta salad with it: cold penne, rinsed kidney beans and chickpeas, red pepper, green onion, feta and olives. Delish!
