Dion's Greek Dressing? FUCK. YES.

So anyone raised in Albuquerque already knows exactly what I'm talking about. Anyone who has moved away can commiserate with just how much I miss Dion's. So the other day I open my email and I find THIS:

to me
1/2c olive oil
3/4c red wine vinegar
1 1/2t oregano
1 1/2t basil
1 1/2t garlic powder
1 1/4t pepper
1 1/4t salt
1 1/4t onion powder
1 1/4t Dijon

That, my friend, is the recipe for Dion's Greek dressing. Put that tasty son of a bitch on a salad because it's hot as fuck.

Seriously though. If you've never had it; make it. Right. NOW. You're welcome. If you still live in NM. Well you're still welcome. Make that shit at home and save yourself some money. Personally I'm a turkey and swiss kind of girl. So I put that shiz on a turkey sub with fresh veggies and my mouth had an orgasm (my husband was pretty excited too).


  1. The ingredients on the back of Dion's Greek Dressing are: egg yolk, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, olive oil, oregano, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt

  2. So I'm pregnant and craving Dions like no one business. Like I think about the green chili cheese subs and ranch salads and wish for them each day. Thank you so much for this recipe.... I see a lot of Greek salads in my future.

  3. Just finished making it and came out good but nothing like dions dressing. Sorry. Try again

  4. Happy to see this as I lost my copy of a recipe years ago (straight from Dion's HQ because I asked nicely). Try using a real garlic clove instead of powder... and whip it up in a blender. Up the amount of Oregano a little... and try to find Greek oregano (smells a little more like pencil shavings than the Italian Oregano, but tastes out of this world! Perhaps it's just roasted a bit.)
