Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Simple Lemon Dressing

We use this lemon dressing on our salads.  When healing the gut, you must avoid vinegar so this is a delicious replacement for dressings typically made with vinegar.   Growing up in a Sicilian household, this dressing topped many a salad and variations of it seasoned our meats and vegetables.  I’ll post the variations as well, stay tuned.

Simple Lemon Dressing

Juice of one lemon

1 tsp salt

dash of ground black pepper

3 Tbsp olive oil

Stir and adjust seasoning to taste

Optional: 1 tsp dried basil if it will complement your salad.

Tidbit:  Contrary to instinct, lemon is considered an alkaline food which is great for balancing the pH environment in the gut.
