Did you know that I have 3 giveaways going on right now? It is a little bit of over kill, and I would have liked to have them more spread out, but this is just how the timing worked. Don’t miss them – the are all awesome!!
Pretty sure everyone could use these!
Do you make your own salad dressings, or do you buy the bottled kind? For me it depends on time, but I love making my own. They are so much better tasting, and better for you that the store bought versions. You can change them up a thousand different ways, depending on what you are using it for. And they actually come together pretty quickly. It took me less than 10 minutes to measure out all the ingredients for this lemon garlic vinaigrette. From there it was just shake like crazy to combine! And it lasts in the fridge for about a week.
Lemon garlic vinaigrette is great on a traditional salad, but I also used some on a cold pasta salad, and it was wonderful. Tart from the lemon, a little creamy, and great garlic flavor. This is a staple in my fridge this summer. My friend Jessi from Fitnessy Jessi inspired this recipe, so hopefully you will go give her some love 🙂

If the dressing gets solid in the fridge, just let it come to room temperature, and shake before serving.
