Here’s a quick kitchen pick-me-up, and a staple every woman needs to have in her back pocket. So simple to make, but impressive to taste! It’s a dressing so creamy and tangy, you’d think you brought it home from a fancy Italian restaurant. Trust me, I am NOT a fan of watery, oily, tasteless dressing. I wouldn’t do that to you! I like creamy and zesty… and this dressing will have you whipping it up every night instead of going for the ┬ásalad “you’re just craving” from (insert your go to restaurant here.)


Here we go! …And FRESH ingredients make all the difference!

In no particular order…


-the juice of one lemon (strain seeds out)

-1 tablespoon of classic dijon mustard (makes it creamy)

-2-3 tablespoons of olive oil (depending on how oily you want it)

-one smashed and finely minced clove of fresh garlic

-fresh cracked sea salt and black pepper to taste

Whisk with a fork until blended completely. Drizzle over clean, COLD, freshly chopped romaine lettuce.

If you are not on a complete caveman diet, feel free to doctor this bad boy up with grated parmesan cheese, croutons, or capers if you’re daring. But honestly, it’s delicious just how it is!
