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.
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
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!
This was a very refreshing salad dressing. I also threw in a few fresh sliced radishes and snow peas from my garden along with the ingredients you mentioned. Yummy!
