  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper


  • Whisk together all ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Store in a jar or airtight container in refrigerator.


  • Use a larger bowl or jar than you feel is necessary when making the dressing. You want to be able to whisk everything together vigorously with quick motions, so the olive oil and red wine vinegar will emulsify together. If your bowl is too small, your mixture will splash all over.
  • If you do not have olive oil, I recommend using another light-tasting oil such as avocado oil or grapeseed oil in its place.
  • If you don’t have dried oregano, you can swap for Italian seasoning or chopped fresh herbs. 
  • If you’re a fan of creamy dressings, you can add a couple of tablespoons of Greek yogurt to the red wine vinegar dressing.
