Lemon Garlic and Honey Dressing

As the weather cools, my Community Supported Agriculture, Stoneledge Farm, harvests a wide variety of lettuces.

These include (but are not limited to):

  • Green Oak Lettuce
  • Tropicana Lettuce
  • Mizuna
  • Red Butter Crunch Lettuce
  • Red Sails Lettuce
  • Green Leaf Lettuce
  • Arugula

No matter what kind of lettuce I get in my share, I know I can count the perfect dressing to make these leaves taste totally delish: Lemon, Garlic and Honey Dressing.

Not only does it dress my salad for success, it has health-supportive ingredients:

  • Lemon gives you nice hit of Vitamin C and helps thin mucous
  • Garlic is antimicrobial and antifungal
  • Thyme is a natural expectorant that keeps the lungs clear
  • Honey is antibacterial and soothes a cough

It’s the perfect dressing for the fall season, or at anytime of the year.

I hope you enjoy this delicious dressing as much as I do.
