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

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add in yogurt, olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, oregano and sugar. Pulse until well combined.
  • Season with salt and pepper. You may also wish to adjust the lemon and vinegar to taste.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before using. Keeps for up to 1 week in the fridge.
