Vegan Green Olive Salad Dressing


This smooth, creamy green olive salad dressing comes together quickly and adds a savory boost to any salad. On slightly bitter greens, this combination of green olives, garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice is delicious. Green olive dressing can also be used as a quick and tasty dairy-free crudité dip, a spread over crackers or toasts, or a color and flavor addition to a pasta salad. Instead of being garnish, olives are coarsely diced and used as a dressing in this salad. It’s also great as a dipping sauce for warm crusty bread pieces.

Green Olives Come in a Different Variety

Olives come in different varieties and you may find them in jars on supermarket shelves or at an olive bar at a gourmet shop. Green olives from Spain are the most frequent, with Manzanilla and Gordal being two popular varieties in American supermarkets. You might also come across the Picholine, a French green olive, Cerignola, an Italian green olive. Check to see if the olive is pitted and stuffed, as giant green olives are frequently packed with pimentos, garlic, or a small amount of cheese.


Serving Suggestions

  • You can use a variety of black olives instead of green olives. Simply avoid using an uncured black olive (such as the kind used to top pizza and nachos) because the dressing will be tasteless. Kalamata, a Greek olive, and Lugano, an Italian olive, are both excellent selections.
  • Fresh herbs, such as parsley, oregano, and cilantro, can be added to the dressing.
  • If you want to make a creamy dressing, add a small amount of mayonnaise to the mixture and blend until smooth.
