Summer salads kind of have my heart ❤️
Not only are they so pretty, but they’re easy, tasty and go with EVERYTHING. Grilling some chicken, steak, or fish? Add a summer salad and you’ve got a full meal.
You know what I’ve just recently discovered though? Grilled citrus! ?
Why has nobody informed me of this phenomenon before?! It’s genius! I decided to throw some grilled lemon into the dressing for this salad for an extra smokey punch of flavor.
Grilled Lemon Dressing…
* 2 small lemons, thinly sliced
* 2 tablespoons shallot (about 1 small shallot)
* 2/3 cup olive oil
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 3-4 tablespoons water (more as needed to thin out)
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Homemade salad dressing will turn your salads from boring to drool worthy. Once you learn how to make a few homemade dressings to keep in your back pocket, you’ll never buy store bought again.
Get yo grill on and let’s do this!
