Lemon and Fresh Mint Vinaigrette

Officially, spring has not yet began, but the weather is so nice over here in Roswell that it almost feels like summer on most days. I am aware that in some parts of Northern America and Europe it is still fairly cold and people may rather want to enjoy something warming and spicy, but this is also a good time to make a large salad with a dressing that is reminiscent of much warmer days and places we would rather be right now.


Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup fresh mint, chopped
  • 1/3 virgin olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove,
  • pinch Celtic sea salt
  • 1/3 tsp freshly ground pepper

Method:
  • Toss all the ingredients into a bowl of a food processor or a blender and process until velvety smooth. 
  • Adjust the taste to your personal liking and serve on a robust salad. Enjoy in good company!


Tip: You can use variety of winter lettuce, kale or cabbage. I used kale, radicchio, endive, sprouted seeds, and spiralized cucumbers. This refreshing salad dressing harmonizes very well with winter greens. You may also want to try it using Meyer lemon. Give it a try.
