There’s a little gastropub in town that we love. It’s perfect for late night dining because the food is fresh and dare I say, some of the best bar food I’ve ever had. They have creative pizzas, a heck-uva mac n’ cheese and some seriously fine burgers. You can swap out the fries for onion rings, which are amazing… and you can also substitute a simple side salad. The side salad is just some mixed greens like spinach and arugula, nothing fancy. Until you taste the dressing. That dressing inspired this Lemon Vinaigrette Recipe. After all, you can’t eat at a gastropub every night… or every time you want a simple, mixed green salad.
Ingredients for Lemon Vinaigrette:
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1 TBSP lemon zest
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
1 TBSP honey
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
