Prep Time 15 minutes
Chill 1 hour
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 cups of dressing, approx

Ingredients

  • 1 small shallot roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 tbsp minced red pepper
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Fry the shallot in a small skillet with a small amount of oil until starting to soften. Raw onion can be overwhelming, and by sautéing first, it helps to cut the bite.
  2. Transfer the shallot to a food processor, along with the garlic and red pepper and pulse until the onion, garlic, and peppers are in small pieces.
  3. Add in yogurt, olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, oregano and sugar. Pulse until well combined.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. You may also wish to adjust the lemon and vinegar to taste.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using. Keeps for up to 1 week in the fridge.
