Our Favorite Lemon Salad Dressing

IMG_2881(1)

I’ve been on a kick of making my own salad dressings.  After looking at the ingredients on bottles from the store, I realized it’s so easy to make something from ingredients we can all pronounce!  This is a favorite of my girls;  we put it on all kinds of salads, but they especially like one that includes quinoa. Give this a try and let me know what you think!

 

4 Tbls fresh squeezed lemon juice

Zest of one lemon

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp salt

1-2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, depending on your prefrence

1 1/2 Tbls sugar

1/3 cup light-tasting oil (I use Extra light olive oil or avocado)

Blend all ingredients well and chill.  Store in an airtight jar.

*When I do use this with quinoa, I pour a little onto the quinoa while it’s still warm so I can absorb the flavors.
