Easy Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette (Vegan Friendly)

Easy Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette (Vegan Friendly) created by PalatablePastime

When we spotted this recipe in the February 2011 issue of Sunset we knew it had to be good. I prepared two versions: one with dark aged balsamic and the second with white balsamic. For a vegan version, skip the mayonnaise or use an egg-free mayonnaise. It was suggested to try the dressing on greens such as oak leaf, mizuna and/or arugula. My husband and I enjoyed it on all three and it was especially tasty on zippy arugula! I would skip the garlic depending on your main dish and/or other items on the menu.

  • 2 tablespoons meyer lemon juice (approximately 1 large lemon)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 14 teaspoon fine sea salt, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

directions

  • In a non-reactive bowl whisk the ingredients together until smooth.

    Very nice! Meyer lemons were cheaper than regular lemons this week (not sure how that happened). This is a great recipe. I used a very nice, thick and sweet balsamic. I think I will try this recipe again with my white balsamic and add a touch more sugar to it. Thanks so much for posting!
