Lemony dressing to serve over greens or as a finishing sauce. Especially great with fresh spinach leaves and freshly sliced avocado.

"Alexia's Lemony Vinaigrette" has a wonderful light tangy citrus flavor. I have made three citrus variations of this recipe: lemon; lime; and orange. Mine was beautifully flecked with both microplaned zest and mustard seeds because I used stone ground mustard. I also substituted honey for the sugar and assumed 3 ounces of fresh-squeezed citrus juice. This is a recipe I will make again many many more times. Thank you Alexia Patramanis for sharing your recipe. Read More

I paired this dressing with bowtie pasta and feta cheese to recreate a delicious lemony pasta that Nordstrom makes. (They add cubed chicken and arugula as well) The only edit I made was adding an extra tablespoon of lemon juice. Very good will be making again! Read More

I did not have Dijon mustard so made it and left that out. We did like it. I had a lemon left from another project and did not want a dessert so tried this. I will be doing it again and will get some Dijon mustard and try it. Read More

This is very good. I would change the recipe as follows since the olive oil taste is a little overpowering: 1/8 cup of olive oil and 1/8 cup of canola oil. Read More

I really like the simplicity of this recipe. I used honey rather than sugar and added a couple shakes of oregano basil and dash of garlic powder. Very good. Thank you for sharing! Read More
