Lemon Garlic Dressing -Mediterranean

"I just love this recipe, I have been putting it on everything! It is mild and fresh. Goes wonderfully on a fresh salad from the garden. It is delicious drizzled on pizza, bread, noodles etc. I found this in a cookbook by Nancy Harmon Jenkins."

  1. Has anyone actually read this recipe? It calls for "1 tsp salt" A TEASPOON of SALT!!! Really?! If it's an error, then the previous reviewers haven't mentioned it. I did make the recipe with a dash of salt, and less oil. It was fabulous on a salad, and if I had french bread, I'm sure I would enjoy it dipped or drizzled also.
  2. This is yummy I eat it daily pretty much as I love lemon and olive oil. I like it with parsley and capers as well. Also a lovely dressing or on bread. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.
  3. Delicious and easy!
  4. Complete agreement with Tina T. I quadrupled this recipe except for the salt. Left it at 1 tsp. Still way too salty. Could use some lovely herbs as well. Overall, not impressed.
  5. This went great over my chicken salad, and I believe it would be great on some french bread in the oven as well! Made for Ramadan Tag 2010


<style>body { background: url(http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu238/gardens-and-roses/rose1.jpg); background-repeat: repeat; }</style> I'm out of high school and living at home so I do a lot of cooking for my family. I love to cook, for me it is both relaxing and fun, especially when there are no time limits! I started baking when I was around 9. I began with making bread then I gradually went on to making meals. Besides cooking and baking I love to knit, paint, sew, and study languages my favorite being Arabic which maybe someday I will actually be able to speak. Most of the recipes I post are family favorites or at least my favorites. My ratings go something like this: 5 stars: Very good, I will definitely make this again. 4 stars: Liked it quite a bit and will make it again but there was either something I had to change or I will only make now and then in the future. If it is lower than these two there is something wrong with the recipe (b/c I'm not picky at all!) and I'll just leave you a comment.:) I hope you enjoy the recipes I post and thank you for your reviews!
