lemon vinaigrette salad dressing



homemade salad dressings turn plain lettuce into spectacular salads.  this easy recipe takes only a couple of minutes and will improve any basic salad.  by using a combination of greens, this dressing adds both depth of flavor and variety to any dinner.

to make this vinaigrette:  in a glass jar, mix 1/4 cup olive oil  with 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel, 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, minced garlic to taste, along with salt and pepper to taste.

to alter this recipe and make a red wine vinaigrette, substitute the lemon peel and juice and instead add 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar with 1/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard.
