lemon tarragon vinaigrette …

July 7, 2011

I love anything with fresh lemons!  The smell alone is just amazing!
In the summertime, I love to eat all the fresh produce that is available, and salads are a daily meal for me.  I was experimenting in the kitchen last week hoping to make a yummy vinaigrette with lemon in it.  I was so pleased with the outcome!  This sweet lemon vinaigrette really screams summer to me!   It is even good just drizzled over some summer berries!
{Lemon Tarragon Vinaigrette}
1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about three lemons)
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup champagne vinegar
1 tsp dried tarragon flakes (you can use fresh, just use about 2 tsp chopped)
1 cup vegetable oil
In a blender, blend all ingredients together, except for the oil.   Slowly drizzle in the oil as it blends.
Serve over salad, and store in the fridge.
