A "gateway" to a from scratch lifestyle? Condiments. They're so easy to make! And hands down one of the easiest? This Super Easy Lemon Vinaigrette that you can whip together in literally minutes.
What is a Vinaigrette?
This is just as simple an answer as it is to make. It's basically a mixture of oil (olive) with an acid (lemon juice) enhanced with salt and pepper. From there you can add almost anything you’d like! As long as it has an oil and acid base, you’ll have yourself a vinaigrette!
A great vinaigrette has simple ingredients and is so simple and easy to make, but soooo much tastier and better for you than anything you'll buy in a store.
How easy? Well, it's as easy as putting all in ingredients (um, 4) into a dish and mixing. That's how easy.
Why Homemade is Healthier
