If you are ever out of salad dressing (or tired of the same old), here is an easy recipe you can throw together in five minutes!
Equal proportions of fresh lemon or lime juice, extra virgin olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar
1-2 cloves of fresh garlic, crushed
Salt and pepper to taste
Brown sugar to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl; mix well.
You can also add your favorite herbs; in the summer, I love adding fresh chopped up rosemary and thyme, and even chives! For a little kick, add chili or red pepper powder.
Pour over salad and enjoy!
