Lemons are a staple in our home. We add it to teas, in our water, as a flavor booster in recipes and especially in our Lemon Salad Dressing.
Lemon Salad Dressing is Perfect for Tomato Salad
One of my favorite salads to make is using a box of heirloom small tomatoes, slicing them in half, adding some red onion slices, fresh herbs and this delicious Lemon Salad Dressing drizzled on top.
If you love artichokes — you must try out our Marinated Artichoke Hearts recipe that has a bit of lemon and some rosemary too. It’s a perfect pairing with the tomato salad above.

Best Ways to Incorporate Lemons Everyday
There are so many wonderful things you can do with lemons. You can add them to you Strawberry Lemonade, enjoy some lemon with this delicious Clam Sauce recipe, try a Clean Lemon Margarita — or just toss a few slices in your water!
Leave a bowl of lemons on the counter so you can remember to squeeze them into your drinking water. I always seem to have a half sliced lemon in the fridge for my morning hot lemon water.
You can also use lemons as an alternative (or flavor booster) to salt. ALWAYS squeeze lemon into your soups and pasta sauces–it boosts flavor without salt!
