On Sundays, in the cooler weather, we head over to Celebration to visit the Farmer’s Market and choose our produce, honey and items fresh from the farm. You never know what you may find, beeswax candles, a special craft, plus the freshest produce around. With Covid19 not yet in our rearview mirror we feel it is safer to participate in outdoor activities and for us a Farmer’s Market is a great way to go. Lots of local farmers showcase their produce, food and crafts and we usually come home with a good mix of items to make an easy Sunday Dinner from our finds.
Last week we purchased some local honey, lemons, and fresh Arugula, came home, and enjoyed a beautiful salad. Easy, Fresh, and well balanced. Great with a grilled piece of fish or a chicken breast.
Honey Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing
½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Juice and Zest from 2 Lemons
1 Tsp. Dijon Mustard
2 Squeezes of honey to taste. (If your lemons are sweet use one squeeze, taste and see if you need more).
½ tsp fresh chopped thyme optional
Salt and Pepper to taste.
I combine all the ingredients in a mason jar. This dressing will keep up to 5 days in an airtight container. You can use this dressing as a marinade too and you can substitute the honey for maple syrup if you did not pick up honey at the farmer’s market.
