I’ve been drenching my salads in this dressing for the past month, and I still can’t get enough of it. You know a dressing is good when you’re tempted to lick the bowl afterward.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    Sounds yummy! I recently made a creamy dill/cucumber dressing that I’m loving, but this one will be next! Quick question.. is the mustard taste really strong? I’m definitely not a big mustard fan but I know it hides well in some recipes and gives them a nice flavour… what d’ya think?

      I didn’t find the mustard taste too strong, but I do love the taste of mustard… so I might be desensitized to it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m sure it would be delicious without it, too!

    I’m totally trying this. I never even thought to have salad without oil…I guess with cheese or avocado you don’t really need extra fat. Win!

      That’s a bummer! I bet you could omit the mustard, and probably substitute a splash of apple cider vinegar for a similar flavor.

    I am making this all the time since you have mention it before in your blog, but you have been using only lemon and stevia so I use only lemon and stevia. Do you still not use stevia? have you find some differences?
    Thanks

    I agree…salads should taste good…I have been enjoying amazing salads with beets, cherry tomatoes, celery, scallions, and goat cheese…oh so good! :) I will have to get these ingredients next time I am grocery shopping! Have a great day!

    I just made this using meyer lemons since I didn’t have any limes. It was very yummy and a perfect refreshing oil free dressing. I might add a little more mustard next time because I love mustard but otherwise, this is wonderful!
