About Lemon Pepper Dressing

Lemon Pepper Salad Dressing (Lemon Pepper Vinaigrette) is a refreshing blend of five simple ingredients: olive oil, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, honey, and mustard sauce.

This 5-minute dressing is tangy and slightly sweet with a subtle hint of spiciness and bold citrus flavor.

Although you can buy a bottle of this dressing in the store these days, it is always recommended that you make it at home. Homemade salad dressing tastes much better than store-bought, is free of artificial colors, flavors, and modifiers, and is more economical.

Ingredients
