Lemon Balsamic Salad Dressing

This recipe was first published with my recipe for Herb Crusted Salmon (find my recipe here).  Drizzle it over your favorite greens and serve with your favorite meal.  You can also use this as a basting sauce/marinade for fish and chicken. 


Lemon Balsamic Salad Dressing



  • The juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Other Ingredients:

  • 8 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced, optional


1.  In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.  I use a salad dressing mixing container I bought from Pampered Chef (it has a pour-spout, and the lid has a built-in whisk; you can make, serve, and store your dressing in one container).


2.  Toss the mixed greens and sliced onion together.  Drizzle with lemon balsamic salad dressing.
