Zesty Lemon Vinaigrette

This zesty lemon vinaigrette is the best vinaigrette with bright lemon flavors. It is so easy to make and is ready in five to 10 minutes.

The zing flavor of lemons makes this my favorite dressing for salads. The fresh and bright flavors will pep up any salads. The dressing can be stored in fridge for a few days. If it separates just whisk again and use. This is versatile dressing that can be used with fresh leafy salads as well as with any grains too.

    Salt - 1/4 plus 1/8 tsp

    1. Loving the flavor profile. My lemon vinaigrette has only gotten salt and pepper. Can't wait to try these other spices.

    2. I like the idea of putting this on grains-- a nice way to jazz up some plain old rice!

    3. What a lovely dressing with bright, punchy flavors! I'll bet this would make a great marinade too!
