The oil tends to separate from the dressing when kept for some time. So make sure to whisk it up nicely again before adding in your salad.
You can also use this dressing to marinate the chicken and shrimps before grilling them.
Make roasted garlic lemon dressing by using chopped roasted garlic instead.
It will have a great depth of flavors. To roast garlic, cut the garlic into half.
Drizzle olive oil over the garlic and sprinkle some salt and pepper.
Wrap each half in aluminum foil and roast in a preheated oven at 400 Degrees F for 30-40 minutes.
