Craving Life ~ Lemon Garlic Dressing

This Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette is a basic, yet essential, dressing that I use in a number of recipes.

Zesty and fresh tasting, yet relatively conservative on the calorie front. I hope it becomes a favorite of yours as well.

You can easily dress it up by adding Dijon mustard, a dash of cayenne, or some finely chopped fresh herbs.

Enjoy!

Prep time
Total time
 
This is better if made in advance, preferably 24 hours, so that the flavors get to know each other. It will keep in the refrigerator for a few days.

The important factor is to maintain the 2:1 ratio of lemon juice to oil. So if your lemons yield less that 6 Tbsp. then adjust your olive oil accordingly.
