Salad with Lemon-Dill Dressing

I really love eating salads as a side dish or as a snack, especially in spring and summer. I always grew up eating a salad of pepperjack cheese, salami and onion with Italian dressing whenever I was hungry for a snack. I usually use a lemon dressing that is pretty basic (lemon juice and olive oil) whenever I have salad for a side dish. I decided to spice it up for dinner last night, and I think it turned out pretty good. Tim thought it was a little spicy because of the garlic, so if you don't want it to be as spicy just cut the garlic in larger chunks. Also, if the dressing is a little too sour, add a pinch of sugar to balance it out. I think this has now become my favorite dressing.

Salad with Lemon-Dill Dressing

Serves 4

4 c. salad leaves
1 tbsp lemon juice
3 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, chopped
1/4 tsp dried dill
Salt and pepper

Blend together lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and dill until an emulsion forms. Mix in salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle over salad leaves.
