Greek Salad Dressing

Greek Salad Dressing

Ingredients:

1 cup red wine vinegar
2 tsp. Dijon style mustard
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
2 3/4 tsp. garlic powder
4 Tbsp. white sugar
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 ¾ tsp. dried oregano
2 ¾ tsp. dried basil

Directions:

Place vinegar, mustard, onion powder, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and white sugar into blender and blend well. Next, slowly add olive oil to blender while on medium-high speed. Then add oregano and basil; pulse once or twice. Store at room temperature.

Servings: 20

Note: The process in which this is mixed will keep it from separating. I find this tastes very similar to the house dressing at our local Greek restaurant.
