Jane’s Zesty Lemon Herb Vinaigrette

This dressing has a bold–and in my and my 12 year-old son’s opinions–amazing flavor. We both looked at each other in awe when we tasted this concoction.  I served it over mediterranean salads for the next three days for dinners, lunches and even breakfast.  It brings any salad to a very lively life.

  1. A question from reading your amazing book-
    Is there a percentage of raw vegetables to cooked to eat or does it make a difference ?
    I have eaten fairly close to your guideline for about 45 years and am 75. Is there another place to post questions?

  2. Hi Jane –

    May I ask about that soup in your picture with the salad? That looks delicious with that salad. And lemon is one of my favorite flavors.

    Thanks again for all you do!!!

    Bless you and family!
