5 Minute Zesty Lemon Vinaigrette Recipes

Today I want to offer you my 5 Minute Zesty Lemon Vinaigrette Recipes to try at home. I decided to do this because of the conversation described below.

Recently, I had a conversation with a friend who admitted that she never makes her own salad dressings because she doesn’t think it’s worth the trouble. For that reason, I promptly forwarded her my super easy and quick lemon vinaigrette recipe (along with my tahini dressing)! So glad to report that it was a hit with her!
