Lemon, mustard, and thyme are 3 of my favorite ingredients.

I usually just use olive oil and lemon juice on my salads, but I thought that I could make my everyday dressing a little more fun! This is lemony so feel free to use less than the recipe calls for.  I like using shallots instead of regular onions for this because it has a much more mild flavor so it doesn’t take over the dressing.  This dressing can be used for salads, tossed with grilled or roasted veggies, or as a dipping sauce.

Here’s what you need:

The juice of two lemons

1 tablespoon whole grain dijon mustard

2 teaspoons fresh thyme (1 teaspoon if using dried)

1-2 tablespoons minced shallots (depending on how much you like)

1/2 cup olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Here’s how you make it:

*Combine all of the ingredients except the olive oil in a bowl.  You can also do this is a mason jar.

*If you are using a bowl whisk everything together and slowly add the oil while whisking.

*If using a mason jar you can add the oil, place the lid on tightly, and shake vigorously!

Either way works!

*Add salt and pepper to taste
