This is a great, light salad dressing. It is a recipe that I got from my mother-in-law and it is one of my favorites. I am one who generally likes creamier dressings and stays away from the oil based dressings so it's worth a try even if you aren't generally a big fan of this type of dressing. I think it tastes way better than the bottled dressing you buy in the store, even the creamy stuff!


  1. Place salt in bowl and rub hard with the fresh garlic until the garlic disappears.
  2. Add mustard, pepper, and oil; mix well.
  3. Add vinegar and lemon.
  4. Pour over lettuce or place in fridge.

This is a great easy dressing, and so much better than all the bad storebought ones! Lots of flavor but not overpowering, really really good. Thanks!
