My Favorite Salad Dressing

If you’re sick of paying for $3-4 dollar high calorie store-bought salad dressings and keep getting frustrated by ingredient lists that seem to only include vegetable oils then this is the right salad dressing recipe for you!  

It is super easy to make, light and refreshing, healthy, and you can easily store in a leftover jar or dressing container in the fridge for weeks at a time!

 This is definitely a bargain too, since many of us already have olive oil on hand in the kitchen, and lemons are usually easy to find year-round and not too expensive.
