  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tbsp lemon zest

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 1/4 tsp Dijon mustard (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, combine the extra-virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, minced garlic cloves, sea salt, black pepper, and Dijon mustard (if using). Whisk everything together until well combined. Alternatively, you can use a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake the ingredients until well-mixed.

  2. Taste the dressing and adjust the seasonings according to your preference. You can add more lemon juice for extra tanginess, more salt for additional seasoning, or more black pepper for added spice. Whisk or shake the dressing again to incorporate any adjustments.

  3. Once the dressing is ready, you can use it immediately or refrigerate it for later use. If refrigerating, make sure to give it a good shake or whisk before using, as the ingredients may separate slightly when chilled.

  4. Drizzle the Lemon-Garlic Salad Dressing over your favorite salad just before serving, or use it as a marinade for grilled vegetables or chicken. Enjoy!
