What’s Cooking: Lemon Salad Dressing

_DSF1752We’re deep into salad season. There is nothing better than picking fresh vegetables right from the garden, making a quick vinaigrette and tossing together a salad. We’ve made dressing with kids as young as 2, who got great joy from picking the oregano, squeezing the lemons, measuring out the other ingredients, and giving everything a good shake in a jar (which you can do instead of the whisking suggested below).

Salad dressing is so easily adapted based on your tastes and the dish you’re making, so we hope you’ll give making it a try at home. There is still time for your child to join us in the garden this summer for more harvesting, cooking, and eating.
