I am a bit of a creature of habit and almost no where is that more evident than in my daily lunch choices when I’m home. I love to make big salads, full of whatever veggies I have in my fridge. The key to making salads really stand out is definitely the dressing. While I do love some store bought options (especially the ones by Salad Girl), I also love to make my own. Lately, I’ve had this Lemon Thyme Vinaigrette on repeat.
Making your own salad dressing really is just about one of the easiest things in the world. All you really need is good oil, an acid, some seasoning, and a jar. I came up with this simple Lemon Thyme Vinaigrette while up at Lane’s cabin this spring. We were testing a lentil dish (coming to the blog soon!) and the flavor I had in my head wasn’t really working out. We had an abundance of lemons and herbs that weekend, so I grabbed some mustard, a little thyme, a fresh lemon and got to work. About 2 minutes later, I had this delicious vinaigrette that was perfect with the lentils and has been on repeat all summer….
