Simple Salad Dressing

Salad Dressing

Someone said when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. I say when a friend gives you lemons, squeeze and freeze the juice. Make a simple salad dressing and, maybe, a lemon meringue pie. Today I did both and want to share a simple salad dressing made with fresh lemon juice. (By the way, for reasons too numerous to tick off, I never buy supermarket salad dressing.) For the ingredient ratio in my recipe, remember one part lemon juice to two parts oil. I add split garlic cloves, salt, pepper, and sometimes herbs. Play around with flavors you like, including Dijon mustard and honey. For a perfect tart, crisp dressing simplicity wins.

Salad Dressing

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice

1/3 cup canola oil (or similar)

1/3 cup olive oil

salt & pepper

peeled, split garlic cloves

Wisk and pour into a clean glass bottle. Refrigerate.
