A terrific Greek Salad Dressing recipe inspired by the dressing served at Christo's Restaurant in Brockton, Massachusetts

This Greek Salad Dressing is my husband Jack’s attempt to recreate the famous, secret recipe for Greek salad dressing from Christo’s Restaurant in Brockton, Massachusetts.  It’s served with our Greek Salad with Meat recipe found here.

Christo’s Restaurant is a landmark Greek restaurant that has been in business since 1964 and is known for serving the best Greek food in the area south of Boston.   Christos is famous for their Greek Salad – so much so that former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis named Christo’s owner, Chris Tsanganis, the “Greek Salad King” – and the name has been proudly used ever since!

This Greek Salad Dressing is delicious but quite bold in flavor – so when making it for the first time, you may want to start with half the amount of oregano and black pepper that is called for in the recipe, and then add more to taste if you like.

    I ordered Christo’s Greek Original salad dressing for years. Now, GiGi tells me she sends it but it akways breaks, this been going on 2 years. Could you ship me a case if 12 bottles of Christo’s original greek dressing(not diet, not creamy) and pay you? My grandparents are no longer alive to do this for me.

      Hi Mike – Christo’s open a “To-Go” restaurant in Whitman a few years ago – your best bet might be to contact them for an order. (I’m not sure we’d have any better luck shipping glass bottles than your Gigi…) The phone number is 508-588-4200. Otherwise, I hope you’ll give our recipe a try!

    Fantastic recipe! How long does it last in the refrigerator?

    • Martha wrote:

      Thank you! Since there are fresh herbs in the dressing, we’d suggest keeping it no longer than a week in the refrigerator.

    My husband and I LOVE bold flavors and we LOVE Greek food. Both the Greek Salad with Meat and the Greek Salad Dressing look fantastic. My husband is quite picky, but this, I’m sure he’s going to love. This will be perfect for an at home date night.

    Martha — it is me again. I left a comment on your Greek Dressing because I love it so much and did not realize you have an entire website of recipes when I posed my question. I am looking at them now and will try many of them in the coming year.

    I have tried MANY Greek salad dressings and this one is the best ever!!! I love my copy I printed out before (I make a mess on my recipes so do not use and IPAD like modern chefs.) and lost it am so glad I found it. Some Greek dressings are too tart and this one is perfectly balanced. I marinate chicken in this or store bought greek dressing but make the final salads with this dressing and my family loves it. Thank you for sharing it. Do you have any thing else you would highly recommend?
