Summers are for backyard barbecues and delicious citrus flavours. That is where my favourite salad dressings come into play.
3 Tbsp of lemon Juice
Lemon zest from half a lemon
1 small garlic clove, finely minced
3 Tbsp of honey (adjust to taste depending on how sour the lemon is)
2 Tsp white balsamic vinegar
1/4-1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
If you have a mason Jar, add all the ingredients and give it a good shake
In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except the oil, salt & pepper
While you are whisking, add the olive oil in a slow and steady stream. Continue whisking until the vinaigrette is emulsified.
I find the flavour of this dressing goes well other flavours on your plate. I personally like this dressing with spinach and add mandarin oranges.
