My go-to Lemon Vinaigrette

The official first day of Summer is TOMORROW. Where did the year go? School is ending, and I’m getting ready for a blog-filled summer bringing you tons of recipes that I think you all will absolutely love. Starting with today! Today’s Healthy Food Friday with American Express is all about lemons and my go-to salad dressing! 

Earlier this week I took a vote on my Facebook Page (if you’re not following me there, you should totally come hang), looking for which lemon recipe you guys wanted to see. The options were: Strawberry Lemonade, my go-to Salad Dressing, Lemon Curd, and Lemon Cookies. While two were in the top, it seems you guys love lemons as much as I do right now, so I’m thinking they will all need to appear in the upcoming weeks!

I often start my mornings off with a glass of warm water with lemon. Lemons are amazing and provide so many health benefits. Plus, they often add the perfect flavor to a dish. Win-win all around.

The Benefits of Lemons

I decided to start off with a favorite of mine. The past few weeks have been all about the BBQ and light side dishes. I’ve been getting tons of local spinach from the farm, and have been making salads left and right. This is my go-to dressing that I whip up in under 4 minutes to dress our salads with! 

P.S. For my Instagram fam, here is the salad chopper I was telling you about! Find it here.
