My Lemon Garlic Dressing aka a basic Lemon Vinaigrette recipe with the addition of some herbs.
A good lemon vinaigrette is like a Little Black Dress – it’s perfect for every occasion (NB. I don’t wear little black dresses).
I personally use this lemon garlic dressing for grilled mackerel but would also go great on my grilled sardines or BBQ lamb ribs. I usually play around with the herbs and maybe add the odd ingredient here or there; but fundamentally, if you ensure you add an equal quantities of lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and garlic – you’ve got it made.
It is the holy trinity of Greek cooking! So my advice is this; make jar full, use it a lot and enjoy!
Lemon Garlic Dressing (Lemon Vinaigrette Recipe) – Ingredients:
3 heaped tbl fresh herbs (Rosemary for meat, Parsley for fish)
1/2 tbl dried oregano
1 tsp salt
Dozen grinds black pepper
Zest 1/2 lemon
Juice 1 lemon
Extra virgin olive oil – equal amount to lemon juice
Pinch of Chilli flakes
Couple cloves of garlic (whole – lightly crushed)
6 cloves (optional – mainly used for marinating lamb, otherwise you can leave out).
This couldn’t be simpler – mix all the ingredients together.
Put it in a jar, tighten the lid and give it a good shake (ideally to music, holding the jar with two hands to the side of your head) 🙂
