Build-A-Salad Dressing

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Apple Cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp finely shredded lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl or put them in a jar and shake to blend.
  2. Use immediately or store, covered and chilled, up to 1 week (olive oil will solidify in the refrigerator but will melt quite quickly at room temperature again).
