Just wanted to let you know that I just prepared your Lemon Dressing for tonight's dinner (I tagged it on PRMR). Anyway... I'm going to use it as a marinade for our boneless skinless chicken breasts tonight. I was gonna toss them in the baggie with the dressing for a few hours, but the lemon is so strong, I'm afraid it will start cooking the chicken in the fridge! LOL. I'm only gonna marinate for 30 minutes before grilling them. That should be plenty.It tastes good so far... I will let you know how they turn out. UPDATE: This was perfect for a marinade for our chicken. I marinated them for approx 25-30 minutes. (I did not have fresh basil, so I used 2 teaspoons of dried from the shaker bottle and it worked well). Wonderful concoction, my dear! I will definately use this again! Thank you for posting your recipe.
This certainly isn't shy on the lemon and I love it! I used a good part of it to dress a potato salad in place of mayo that worked great. Would you believe that it's a wonderful fresh tasting salad dressing as well? lol. I used it also on a salad of simple mixed greens and they were elevated to something special. I used Meyer lemons by the way to make this simple and yummy dressing/vinaigrette.
