Summer Salad Dressing


Visiting the abundance of farmer stands is one of my favorite Summer rites.  And nothing complements an splendid summer day as a salad containing all those delectable vegetable finds. I think it's rather silly to give recipes for a green/vegetable salad; so instead I am presenting my favorite summer salad dressing by itself, which can complement your favorite veggies.  The lemon/lime combo in this dressing is so evocative, I promise you will absolutely love it.  This is also so simple and healthy that you won't have to worry about adding extra fat/calories to your summer diet.  Learn this dressing recipe and you forever will have the power to transform any salad into a Summer Delight - all year around!

What you need: Juice from 1 lemon (zest is optional), Juice from 1 lime , 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt, 1/4 teaspoon of grounded white pepper

What you do: Whisk all ingredients together in a large bowl and let it stand for five minutes (neither shake nor mix with a fork; I'm telling you whisk!).  That is it; combine with your favorite salad ingredients.  Enjoy.
