Favorite Lemon Vinaigrette Recipe


Lemon Vinaigrette Recipe is one of my favorite and basic go-to salad dressings!  It will freshen up any spring or summer salad and only takes a few minutes to make.  If you like lemon recipes as I do, you will love this delicious salad dressing.

I am always making this salad dressing for my salads because it is so easy to make and so good.  To make this dressing properly, you MUST used fresh-squeezed lemon juice and not bottled lemon juice.  That is the key ingredient.  Can also be served over cooked asparagus, broccoli, and fresh tomato slices.  Be creative and enjoy!
