Food Factor: Honey Lemon Vinaigrette

Summertime means eating more salads. Have you ever eaten a salad and thought about changing the dressing to fit your taste? It’s easy and fun to do. The good news is, you don’t have to make a lot to try new flavor combinations. Unlike buying an entire bottle of salad dressing only to discover you don’t like it, you can whip up a small batch of ingredients you have on hand. If you don’t like it, you can try again!

Here is a personal favorite.

Honey Lemon Vinaigrette

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice

1 teaspoon honey

Salt and pepper, to taste

Fresh minced garlic, to taste

Whisk ingredients together.
