  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive OIl
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice fresh squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Add all ingredients to small glass jar or small bowl. 
  • Put a lid on the jar and shake to combine, or whisk ingredients in small bowl. 


Zest your lemon before juicing!  I use a Microplane zester to zest right into the jar.  You can squeeze the lemon by hand, but I find a manual citrus press works great for small jobs. 
 I use a small jar to make my vinaigrettes.  Shaking seems to work so much better than whisking for me, especially if the dressing has honey.  It also allows for easy storage in the refrigerator.
