Honey Lemon Vinaigrette

I think I have mentioned I like to eat soups or salads for lunch most days.  If I keep my lunches and breakfasts fairly healthy I don’t feel so bad having a burger for dinner, or maybe even a slice of pecan pie afterwards.  I also need variety.  Mr. Insanity could eat the same thing every day for years and not become bored, even after decades of being together, I still don’t quite understand him. So, my quirk of needing variety means many salad dressing ideas.  I love creamy dressings, but I try and use them sparingly since they tend to be higher in calories than their vinaigrette counterparts.  I love the tangy sweetness that the honey and lemon create here. This is also a dressing you can make for any Paleo friends out there as I believe all of the ingredients in this are paleo friendly.  This is a super easy dressing that comes together in about five minutes.We start with a little lemon juice into a jar.  DSC_0049

To that we add some salt and pepper and a little Dijon mustard.  Then we drizzle in a little honey.   I love to watch honey pour for some odd reason.DSC_0050

Top if off with some olive oil and shake that up.  Dressing is made! I keep mine in the fridge and it lasts for a week.
