Can you believe it’s nearly summer? Bikinis hit the store aisles, ice cream trucks set up camp at the playground and you may be in the market for a summery recipe or two. One of our favorite summer staples is a classic, zingy, lemon vinaigrette. Lemon dressings are the best when they are sweet and make your mouth pucker, and this mustard and honey combination will brighten any summer picnic spread.
The secret to this snappy salad dressing is its versatility. It can spice up a dressed-down salad (like a side of arugula) or accentuate a more elaborate dish (like roasted beets, chickpeas, or asparagus). This quick recipe features our Meyer Lemon CBD Drops, a tasty broad-spectrum CBD that can help regulate stress and sleep. That’s a pretty solid perk for a vinaigrette if you ask us.
So, throw it on whatever you like, from asparagus or cauliflower to other seasonal favorites like tomato and basil. Even if you’re just whipping up a quick side to dip cucumber in, this cool and lively concoction is an easy way to jazz up a plate.
- 2 large fresh lemons
- ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 Garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 serving Meyer Lemon CBD Drops in your preferred strength
- 2 pinches salt
- 1 pinch black pepper
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
This recipe can be whisked together in a bowl or shaken in a jar. Juice your two lemons, careful to remove seeds, and mince your garlic as finely as possible. Then, combine all ingredients and mix or shake them up well. As Ina Garten would say, “How easy is that?”
When done, serve the dressing over your summery recipe of choice. It’ll be the hit of the picnic, barbecue, pool party, wherever. You’ll be going for seconds before you know it!
