I've been experimenting with fresh salad dressings for a few years now.
This is one of my favorites.
Mix together in a bowl:
1/4 tsp Fresh Lemon Peel
1 TBS Fresh Lemon Juice
2 tsp Minced Shallots (I've also substituted garlic)
2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Honey
1-2 tsp Dijon Mustard (optional, for more flavor and a thicker consistency)
Salt and Pepper to Taste
While whisking these ingredients in a bowl, slowly pour in:
2-3 TBS Walnut Oil or Olive Oil
(The walnut oil gives it a lighter and nuttier flavor)
And my favorite salad to put it on:
A thinly sliced Granny Smith Apple
Gorgonzola or Blue Cheese
You can dress it right before serving or serve the dressing on the side.
