This recipe is very forgiving. Don't have jalapeno. Use sriracha. 

Don't have cilantro, use green onion or oregano for a twist.

Use this lovely fresh dressing over a bed of lettuce, tomato and cucumbers or any of your other favorite salad toppings.

Lemon Oregano Salad Dressing


Ingredients
  • 1 medium organic lemon washed well and dried
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 medium cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 bunch fresh oregano leaves* packed
Instructions
  1. Cut both ends off of lemon and discard. Thinly slice lemon, discarding seeds as you go. Stack a few slices on top of each other and chop fairly fine. You want the pieces pretty small, but keep some texture.
  2. Place chopped lemon and all other ingredients except oregano in a small jar with a tight fitting lid and shake, shake, shake!
  3. Chop oregano fairly fine and add to dressing before serving.

Recipe Notes

If not serving the dressing right away, wait to add the oregano till just before serving as it gets darker in color as it sits in the dressing. It still tastes great but isn’t quite as pretty.
