BEST Homemade Salad Dressing (yet)

I have definitely topped myself here. I’m sure it’s not original, but it’s new for me and I have to share it….

juice of 1/2 a fresh lemon
1/2 a small onion (don’t be shy!)
2 cloves garlic
olive oil (a little more than the lemon juice)
sea salt n pepper
splash of balsamic vinegar

Stick it all in a blender (I used a magic bullet) and pour over fresh veggies. AMAZING.

Don’t be afraid of the onion, lemon, and garlic, it seems like the harshness you would expect gets softened by the olive oil and it has almost a sweetness to it… healthy!

Next time I’m going to add some fresh ginger too! I just learned about the value of the “Herb Root Trinity” (and when I heard it mentioned again in class today I had to comment on it) – garlic, onion, and ginger all cleanse the body, and produce, as well as maintain, energy. They work better when all used together, and I would imagine even better so when used fresh!

TAKE THAT ranch dressing…you’re no longer a staple in my life.

  1. UPDATE: This is totally even better with about a tablespoon of grated ginger!!!!!!! A little more zippy, and I feel like a million bucks right now.
