{Bite: Lemon, Dill, and Olive Oil Salad Dressing + Video}

When I was younger, we’d normally eat our salads with a creamy (ranch) dressing, or an italian dressing either store bought or made with the dried seasoning packets and olive oil. A couple of months ago I decided to make a dressing with more of a healthier twist (sans processed/prepared salad dressings from the store) and tired this Lemon Dill Dressing. I think this dressing is a perfect counterpart to the crisp cool salads that I enjoy so much during the warmer months.

{Yay my first video!!! This is just my first test, but what do you think?}

1. Squeeze the juice of one lemon and set aside.
2. In your mortar - chop a handful of dill, sprinkle in a tsp of sea salt and 1 tbsp of olive oil.
3. With your pestle grind the salt, dill, and olive oil together to release the flavor of the dill.
4. Pour the dill, salt, and olive oil mixture into the bowl with the lemon juice and add another 2 tbsp+ of olive oil and a sprinkle of ground black pepper (you could also add copped garlic)
4. Whisk everything together.
5. Pour the dressing over your salad.

It's that easy!

I hope you enjoy this dressing as much as I do. With the warmer weather upon us - this light, fresh, and healthy dressing is the perfect addition to your salads. You could also use this to top your fish, chicken, or even chilled pasta salad with.



  1. I like your video! It was kind of hilarious because I got excited about hearing your voice and then it wasn't there...:) Nevetherless, its very professional.

    1. Thank you!!! Oh don't you worry - I'll be showing my face (and voice) in no time. I'm trying to get this whole video thing down. Stay tuned!!!
