This refreshing recipe goes well with grilled fish or chicken. We enjoy the lemony dressing at room temperature, so I make it first and let it rest on the counter while I toss the salad together. —Julie Kirkpatrick, Billlings, Montana

This is my favorite lemon vinaigrette. The lemon peel did make a huge difference. I added sliced apple and kiwi to the salad. Colorful and delicious! Thanks for sharing.

MY REVIEW

Not sure if I missed something critical in the vinaigrette recipe, but #1 it seemed like 1 tsp. of salt was excessive for barely over 1/2 cup of liquid. And the 1/4 cup of lemon juice was extremely tart--there was no sweetness to balance it, and it seemed as though there should have been some water added to balance out the acidity. Tell us that the water was a forgotten element here.

The salad and dressing were wonderful. Paired with grilled chicken. Next time I will add some Feta cheese and capers for a little more salty flavor.

Too lemony to my taste

MY REVIEW

The dressing is my absolute favorite. I haven't had the luxury of adding raspberries to my salad yet, but I'm sure it's delightful as well - the vinaigrette dressing is excellent on any type of salad, really. I've been sharing it with my friends and family and they all want the recipe!
