Optimized-salads.jpg

Warm weather means lots of healthy raw vegetables and salads and what better way volume up the raw vegetables and salads on your plate than to have a few great dressings to drizzle over them. I have a few winner recipes that I will share with you over the next few weeks and am starting with one of my favourites a great citrus dressing that is sweet and tasty and makes any salad really special.  

Citrus Dressing

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Method

Whisk the lemon zest, lemon juice, orange juice, Dijon, honey, thyme, and salt in a medium bowl until well combined. Gradually whisk in the oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream, to make a smooth, slightly thick dressing.
