TIPS AND SUBSTITUTIONS FOR THIS Lemon Herb Salad DRESSING

  • Dried oregano is going to give this dressing a greek vibe. However, you can use other dried herbs like rosemary, basil, or Italian seasoning. If you would like to use fresh herbs, triple the amount.
  • You can also substitute minced shallot or onion for the garlic.
  • Use high-quality extra virgin olive oil since this is one of the main ingredients and is not being cooked. Use something that you enjoy the taste of on its own.
  • If you want a sweeter, less acidic dressing, you can add a small amount of sugar or honey.
  • Shake or whisk the dressing immediately before serving so that all of the ingredients are evenly distributed when pouring. When this dressing sits, the heavy stuff goes to the bottom.
  • Store this dressing covered in the fridge. The dressing will solidify slightly when cold so when you are ready to use it, bring it to room temperature. You can either set it on the counter ahead of time or place it in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes.

MY FAVORITE TOOL TO MAKE SALAD DRESSING AT HOME

I love using my OXO salad dressing shaker when making salad dressings at home. It has measurements on the side so there is have less to clean up, a convenient pour spout, and I can store any leftover dressing right in this container in the fridge.
