"It is probable that the lemon is the most valuable of all fruit for preserving health."
-Maud Grieve

The refrigerator light goes on...

This dressing tastes just like summer. The combination of sweet, tart, sour and salt balances and the dill shines through. The lower calorie ingredients are enriched by the bright lemon and fresh dill.

Dry Those Salad Greens

Make sure that your salad greens are dry, dry, dry before tossing the dressing with the them. If they are damp the dressing won’t stick as well and you will have to use more. Usually 2 tablespoons of a well made dressing (one that is well emulsified) is enough if the greens are dry. A salad spinner is the key to drying lettuce and a must have in any kitchen.
