Add my praises to the rest. I made 1/2 the amount as it's just for me and I'm more than pleased with the dressing. Very simple to make up and will be delicious on any salad. I'm thinking of using it to marinate some fish in the next day or two. Should be yummy there too.

So, this is a tad bit embarrassing... I went to make this recipe and realized I didn't have any lemons but had plenty of limes. I decided to try it with the lime juice and if it didn't turn out well, I would not review the recipe. It actually turned out really well and we loved it! It would be equally wonderful with the lemon, I am sure. We loved the combination of flavors and I appreciated the ease of preparation. I made half of the recipe and still have lots leftover. Thank you!

Just what I was looking for! I did not have any shallots, so I made the dressing without. I also preferred a bit more honey for added sweetness. This was fantastic over an arugula salad with glazed walnuts, pears and blueberries. It was very refreshing. Thanks!

Made this to serve over a mixed summer green salad. I used fresh lemon and added about 1/2 tsp. more honey for DH's taste and a little minced garlic...WONDERFUL. Will be making this often. Thank you.

This vinaigrette is so easy, and so light yet very refreshing and tasty.I used fresh lemons and it was soooooo fantastic! I used the vinaigrette over avocado salad, we had for dinner last night. And it had just the right amount of tang to it! Everyone enjoyed it and used it over other salads I had served! Thanks Lauralie, this is a wonderful quick and easy recipe, which I will be using again.

I love citrus flavors, especially lemon, so when I found this recipe in your 1-2-3 book, I had to tag it!! This is wonderful vinaigrette. So fresh and simple to put together, I used fresh lemons and followed recipe as directed. I served it over leaf lettuce, carrots, celery, cucumbers, croutons and monterey cheese. Thanks for a great recipe Lauralie!!
