A beautiful salad can easily be sabotaged by the wrong dressing. I've been making this quick vinaigrette for years now, and it's easily adapted to suit different food combinations by changing the type of vinegar/acid added. This goes great on a fresh greens salad loaded with veggies, and all the ingredients are easy to come by! With no high fructose corn syrup, sugar or other unwanted additives, you can feel good about drizzling this over your greens. It can also be multiplied to suit the needs of your household, and stores well in the fridge too!
Easy Lemon Vinaigrette 🍋
You will need:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salad vinegar (can exchange for balsamic or ACV as desired)
1 tsp Bragg Organic Sprinkle seasoning*
1/4 tsp onion powder
Juice of 1/4 of a lemon (about 1 tbsp)
Fresh cracked pepper (to taste)
Dash Sea Salt
Combine all ingredients and allow flavors to meld for a few minutes (while you prepare your salad). Drizzle over the top of your greens and enjoy!

*I discovered the Bragg 24 Herbs Seasoning about a year ago, and I'm so glad to have come across it! It's gets utilized in many dishes I make, but salad dressing is probably the most common.
**Don't let the fat content scare you! 😳 What's important is the type of fat you're consuming, and olive oil is one of the best kinds you can incorporate into your diet. Fats are essential to the proper function of our metabolism, along with many other health benefits! See this article for more information about olive oil 🤓❤️👍
