Zesty Lemon Shallot Dressing

Zesty Lemon Shallot Dressing | nutritionstripped.comNow that you’re well equipped with knowledge all about lemons from my previous post, today I share with you a quick and simple (per usual) recipe. Introducing Zesty Lemon Shallot Dressing. This dressing is light, refreshing, and brings a lot of life to plain salad greens. I love pairing it with peppery arugula, dark kale, or romaine. This salad dressing can also be used as a dipping sauce for roasted veggies, raw veggies, tossed on quinoa or rice, used as a marinade, tossed on tofu or tempeh, or drizzled over other proteins.

If you’re not a big fan of onions (as they’re an acquired taste), you’re in for some good news. Quick note about shallots: shallots are in the “onion” family, but they have a much more mild taste. Unlike an onion, which is considered to have a single edible large bulb, shallots are made of several clusters of bulbs similar to garlic. Shallots are used in a variety of ways including freshly sliced as a condiment/topping, pickled, softened by sautéing  fried as a condiment or garnish (which is common in Asian cultures), and dried/dehydrated.
