Anyway, I didn't want to bring a boring salad, so I decided to try making an interesting dressing. After some cud-chewing (with myself) I decided on a lemon vinaigrette. All of the recipes I found included ingredients I didn't have, so I winged it (wung it? who knows). And the dressing was actually really good. Here it be:
Lemon Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
1/3 c olive oil
ALL the juice in one lemon
a few grinds or shakes of pepper
same of salt
1/3-1/2 purple onion, diced small
1/2 t dry thyme or one sprig fresh, leaves broken up to release flavor
1 tsp honey
1. Chop the onion. Combine all the stuff. Stir it up.
2. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours so the flavors will leach into each other.
3. Pour onto/toss into salad.
|Look at the ripeness and red juiciness! Also, that's my favorite knife. It's like a mini-santoku.|
