Lemon Garlic Dressing

Inspired by a delicious dressing at one of my favorite lunch spots in Westport, CT, I set out to make my own version of lemon garlic dressing. I love this dressing because it transforms a simple meal into something with bold character. I make a mason jar full of it and keep it in the fridge so I can easily add it to whatever I’m cooking, be it salads, sandwiches, grilled or roasted vegetables, tofu or roasted chicken. This recipe is simple and easy to make.

Lemon Garlic Dressing Recipe



  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Lemon Juice (about 3/4 of a lemon)
  • 1/2 cup extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2-3 cloves of Garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Stone Ground Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt



  1. Prep your ingredients: juice the lemon, peel the garlic, and measure out the olive oil, salt and mustard.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth.
