Lemon Mint Vinaigrette Salad Dressing Recipe

When we visit a Middle Eastern Restaurant near us, my Hubs loves to get their salad with the mint dressing on it.    I told him I could probably make that dressing, so here is what I came up with and he says it tastes just like the restaurants.

Sorry you can't really see the dressing,.. I forgot to take a picture of it the first day and this is what is left.




Lemon Mint Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

1/3 Cup Lemon Juice
1/3 Cup Good Quality Olive Oil ( I always use first cold pressed)
1/3 Cup Chopped Fresh Mint
1/8 teaspoon salt or Sumak (Sumac)

Make sure you chop the mint fine then blend all together
Some like a little sweetness to their dressings so if you are one of those add a sweetner to equal 1 teaspoon of sugar.

I grew my own mint over the summer.  When fall came, I decided I would take a couple pots of mint in the house and try to over winter it.    I now have some of the spindliest mint you have ever seen, but I did get enough off of it do make a small batch of this Lemon Mint Vinaigrette Salad Dressing.

  1. Oh yummy! Travis just made a salad dressing for a beet salad yesterday. I'm trying to like beets. This dressing sounds wonderful. Store bought dressings are horrible. It's good you are making your own.

  4. Sounds good. I often use goat yogurt as a salad dressing, sweetened with a pinch of stevia.

  6. I'd try this and I'm not even usually a dressing gal. I love mint and lemon though, and I think it sounds like the perfect sounding accompaniment to some good salad veggies.

    Here's a great candida free dressing.
    Take 6 garlic cloves and. Crush with fork untilit becomes a paste add dsalt and lay cucumber on top.putcin fridge. The garlic and salt will pull all the cucumber water out. Let it sit in fridge for 2 hour's. Then stir and add salad. It is delicious and so good to cure yeast and bacteria
