I consider this, the most perfect dressing. It is so delicious but it does not overpower. The garlicky, lemony taste compliments so many things. I use it on salads often, but I have also tossed it with steamed veggies. It is easy to make, and requires ingredients that are readily on hand. It tastes best when it has a few hours to sit so that the flavors infuse, however, you can make it right before you use it and it is still wonderful.
1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
The juice of 1 lemon
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
salt & pepper
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with a whisk until blended. Season to taste.
