Would you like to come and visit my happy place? Well…one of them. I have several actually…and one of them could involve stripey party straws and turquoise Ball jars…but that isn’t the one that I’m talking about on mmmMonday! today. By the way…I am not responsible for any mason jars or stripey straws that jump into this post today. Okay…I am…but I know that it’s totally off subject…and I just can’t help myself. I am rambling…but I’m crazy about the fact that Ball is celebrating with blue jars this year. Okay…back on track. Today on mmmMonday!…..my happy place of lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. It’s a beautiful thing.
A couple or three years ago…my friend Jenny introduced me to the beauty of lemon juice on salad. I’m just talking…a simple drizzle of olive oil and squeezing a fresh lemon over the top. It’s so bright. So fresh and delicious. It’s also very healthy.
You may already do this. I just wanted the folks that have not tried it…to know the beauty of the humble lemon. We have used it to make lemonade over the years…we have used it to flavor fish and chicken and lots of other things but squeezing it over salad without making a fancy dressing? I challenge you to try it. Your favorite veggies…with a sprinkle of sea salt and a few twists of freshly cracked pepper….then a drizzle of oil and a splash of lemon juice? Amazing.
Leave me a comment and let me know your favorite way to dress a salad. I really want to know!
p.s. I hope that the dads in your life had an amazing Father’s Day weekend. I think that ours did. I enjoyed honoring my husband and our dads so much. God is good…to give us these men to love us…lead us…protect and provide. Amazing…this plan of His. 🙂
