Simple Lemon Vinaigrette

Simple Lemon Vinaigrette

This simple lemon vinaigrette is healthy and so delicious. It uses pantry items like fresh lemon juice, good olive oil, and minced garlic and it brightens up almost any salad. My family really likes a tangy vinaigrette so I add a lot of fresh lemon juice but you can always adjust the amount if you like it less tangy. I sweeten this vinaigrette with honey but white sugar or agave also works. I made a delicious mixed greens salad for lunch recently which I tossed with this simple lemon vinaigrette and my husband & I thought it was very tasty and full of flavor.
