Keri’s Lemon Dressing

Can you tell by the name of this one that Keri loves it?

There’s no mistaking why it would be a nutritionist favorite: well-meaning eaters often make healthy salads and then cover them with bottled dressings (sugar! cheap oils! artificial flavors!) that basically ruin the nutrition profile.

Enter this substitute, which anyone can make at home in five minutes flat. And it goes with everything. Really, olive oil and lemon have never met a vegetable they didn’t love. Make a big batch and keep it in your fridge for an easier, healthier week.

1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

Keri’s Lemon Dressing
  1. Mix all ingredients together until combined.


It’s the perfect light dressing for any salad combination you could think of, and its few ingredients are rich in antioxidants. You can make it in two minutes or less—potentially faster than how long it takes you to get that plastic wrapper off of a calorie-bomb, sugary bottled dressing.
