Lemon Oregano Dressing

I am obsessed with this dressing.

It’s inspired by one of my favorite local restaurants, and while it doesn’t taste exactly like the original, I have a feeling it’s because this version is healthier. That’s a trade-off I can live with.

Combine everything but the olive oil in a mini-food processor until thoroughly combined, then add in olive oil and blend until emulsified.

I just don’t think I could ever do a high-raw diet. My body craves carbs and protein like its none other. For some reason if I have a ton of raw veggies, my stomach gets pretty irritated.


Whoa, you are one healthy girl! I don’t think I could go raw, but good for you for trying it. And I’m so bummed that I missed Top Chef! Do you have any favorites so far? I don’t really…which is unusual for me.

I could really use that book! Let me know how you like it. What are the noted benefits of 5-HTP?

I agree with having a mix of raw and non-raw, we learned the hard way.

The juice looks great!!

I love Top Chef! I like Kevin, Kelly and I liked Kenny for a while, but he’s almost as egotistical as Angelo! I have been watching Work of Art too, but I missed last night. I like Miles, Abdi and Nicole.

I will be checking out that book: Natural Relief, I too deal with anxiety and I love reading about natural remedies!

your foods always look so fresh–i love it.


I’m finally printing this recipe for my records! It’s one of our top 5 go-to homemade dressing. Great job & thanks!


I just tried this. I used fresh oregano since I had it on hand and needed to use it up. And I used meyer lemons, as I didn’t have regular ones. It turned out delicious! I’ll be making it again as a larger batch so it can last me a bit longer.


Yay! I have some fresh oregano to use up, and fresh lemons from our tree, so this will be perfect!
