We’ve been really into making our own salad dressings lately. Once I found a few simple “go to” dressings that work, and are delicious, I was hooked. Homemade salad dressings 1) have only simple ingredients 2) are fresher than store bought bottles 3) are more cost effective 4) are tastier!
I love the combination of lemon and garlic. This dressing was inspired by our Lemony Garlic-Parmesan Broccoli recipe, created last January and seems to be pretty suitable for almost every salad…well the ones we’ve been eating lately 😉
I like to make our dressings in jars with lids because they can be made ahead of time or packed in lunches. I send some with Grey to work along some fresh veggies or salad instead of a sandwich. Not to mention it’s just easier to throw everything into a jar, shake, and done!
Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 0 minutes | Serves: 2
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Put all ingredients into a quarter or half pint jar*. Screw on lid and shake vigorously. You can also add all ingredients to a bowl and whisk together.
*The jar method is great for making the dressing ahead of time.
Love, Grey & Brianna
