Lemon and Olive Oil Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

A classic Mediterranean salad dressing that’s simple and so good – makes a great marinade for grilled chicken, too.

Top Review by TucsonDee

The one-to-one ratio of EVOO to lemon juice makes it way too tart. Use the tried-and-true 3 parts EVOO to one part vinegar (in this case, lemon juice).
