If you’re anything like me, this simple Mediterranean Lemon Pepper Dressing recipe will come in handy all. the. time. I almost always forget to check my fridge for salad dressing until AFTER I’ve made a salad. It’s a rookie mistake, but I never learn. Luckily, this simple recipe contains just 4 simple ingredients and can be put together in minutes. Phew! A total salad saver. Homemade salad dressings are also cheaper and way healthier than most store-bought options, which is great if you’re on a Whole30 or are just trying to eat healthier in general.

In the last week, I’ve used this dressing on a spinach salad, a cold green bean salad, and even on a beautiful filet of mahi-mahi! The possibilities with this are endless. All you need is olive oil or avocado oil, fresh lemon juice, Mediterranean salt, fresh cracked pepper, and a whisk or frother. Each image below is a link for the ingredient on Amazon. I highly recommend purchasing a frother. It’s the BEST tool EVER. I use it nearly every day in my morning coffee or matcha, and it’s handy for other tasks (like mixing salad dressing), too!

The frother I mentioned above is my secret to making this a “creamy” dressing. The fast whisking motion of the frother slightly emulsifies the oil and lemon juice, giving it a think and frothy texture. Okay let’s learn how to make this dressing!
