Lemon Garlic Dijon Dressing

One of my favorite dressings, this one packs a punch with fresh lemon juice and lots of garlic. Fantastic on a lunch salad with mixed lettuce, mustard greens and arugula paired with grilled chicken, feta cheese and heirloom tomatoes.

Lemon Garlic Dijon Dressing

Recipe by creativepantryCourse: Salads, Sauce It UpCuisine: American


  • 3/4 cup Fresh Lemon Juice

  • 3/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 6-8 cloves Fresh Garlic (If out of fresh, use a couple heaping tablespoons of pre-minced garlic)

  • 2 heaping tablespoons of Dijon Mustard

  • 1 to 2 teaspoons salt to taste (My preference is Himalayan pink salt)

  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric (optional)


  • Blend everything together. A wide mouth canning jar and stick blender work best, but even just shaking everything together in a sauce container will do the trick.
  • Store in refrigerator. Best if used within two weeks.


  • If this is too strong for your tastes, add another 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil to reduce the tartness.
