3 Minute Lemon Vinaigrette


  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 cup lemon juice, if you are juicing the lemon fresh include the zest for extra punch

  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced or grated

  • 1/4 of a white onion, minced or grated

  • 1 tsp Cajun seasoning (I use Tony's low sodium)

  • 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt (1 tsp if using a 'salt free' Cajun blend)

  • 1/8 tsp cayenne (optional)


Combine all ingredients in a mason jar, close the lid tightly and shake! Store it in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. This can be used as dressing on salads, pastas, vegetables and as a marinade on meats and seafood. It is incredibly versatile and can be altered by adding fresh or dried herbs.
