Fresh Lemon Vinaigrette

Updated: May 7, 2018


This fresh lemon vinaigrette is my secret weapon to trick myself into eating more salads. Start with a base of arugula, top it off with quinoa and goat cheese for a light side salad or add grilled chicken for a fresh spring meal. The beautiful thing about it is that you can customize it to your taste. More lemon zest, less dijon... it's all up to you! I make this ridiculously easy vinaigrette once a week. Here's my recipe:
