I've made every single kind of vinaigrette there is: with red wine vinegar, lemon juice, champagne vinegar and almost always Dijon mustard. Sometimes shallot and/or garlic. Lately I've made this dressing exclusively. It has a really nice tang from the lemon juice, and it contains less olive oil than standard recipes which call for a three-to-one ratio. Good sweet/salty balance. Keeps in the fridge and goes together in minutes. Tonight with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella & basil. Very versatile.

I have used this recipe for 3 years, I love it so much. I like it very lemony and I always cut the oil in half.

While this is a basically good dressing, I added a 2" strip of lemon peel to it, pressing with the back of a spoon to release the oil for a stronger lemony taste.
