Recipe: Easy, EASY Salad Dressing

The flavors of this dressing blend with just about anything you want to put into a salad.

This extremely simple salad dressing consists of three ingredients, and is so simple that you’ll find yourself saying, “Bless that Deer Pond Gardens” place! This simple salad dressing is really, really, easy. What makes it even easier is the use of stick, or immersion blender, but if you just have a fork and good wrist, you can whisk briskly and emulsify the oil with the lemon juice. You know, it takes me more time to talk about this recipe than it will for you to make it. Dress it gently over fresh salad greens — if you’re in the Dayton, WA, area, pick up those greens from Deer Pond Gardens at the Saturday Farmer’s Market or at Deer Pond Gardens (see our About section).

Using an immersion blender — I’ve tilted the container so you can see better; generally, I keep the container flat. Make sure to unplug the blender the moment you’re not using it. The blades are sharp.

Easy EASY Salad Dressing — makes 2/3 cup Ingredients:

1/3 cup lemon juice

1/3 cup olive oil

3 Tablespoons Sugar (use less, or more, depending upon how much sour kick you want in your salad dressing)

In a mixable container, pour in lemon juice and olive oil, add sugar. Blend with immersion blender until creamy and emulsified, or whisk together with a fork until blended. That’s it. See you at the Farmer’s Market.

  1. I have that exact same immersion blender. One word: LOVE! I use mine nearly daily – at least once. Isn’t that cup great? 🙂

    I make a similar salad dressing – you are right – easy peasy with that stick blender. Maybe we could have a virtual immersion blender party? 😊

    Great post! I’m happy to bump into you via Show & Share Wednesday.
