Traditional Mediterranean Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

This delicious Mediterranean salad dressing blends lime, pepper, garlic, salt, and rosemary with extra-virgin olive oil. You can use this as a salad dressing for mixed Mediterranean salad vegetables or you can even use it as a marinade for chicken or fish. If you plan to make an exciting appetizer salad or side salad with it, you might like to use lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and perhaps something fruity like pineapple chunks. You can use lemon juice instead of lime juice if you prefer but, whichever you choose, use freshly squeezed rather than canned, for the best results.

This recipe makes almost a cup so you can halve it if you want or double it if you want enough Mediterranean vinaigrette salad dressing for a party. This one is really easy to prepare too, since all you need to do is whisk everything together until it is well combined. You can store this Mediterranean salad dressing in a covered container in the refrigerator for a few days if you like, but you will probably need to give it a good shake or stir before serving.

This wonderful Mediterranean salad dressing is tasty and aromatic. Along with the extra-virgin olive oil we are using lime juice, red pepper flakes, garlic, salt, and rosemary. These fragrant flavors are sure to give your salad an amazing flavor. Although you can drizzle this over any kind of salad leaves, it is particularly nice tossed with cooked potatoes to make a Mediterranean-style potato salad, and then you can pair that with grilled fish filets perhaps. Alternatively try it with a simple lettuce, cucumber, tomato and olive salad, or enjoy it drizzled over chicken, turkey or fish for a tasty of the Mediterranean.
