The first time I had a customer order lemon wedges with their salad I thought I heard the person wrong. Like maybe she wanted the lemon for her water. But nope, she wanted lemon wedges for her salad. I watched her to see if she actually ate it this way. I thought it must be a trick. To my utter disbelief, she didn’t cringe or spit it out but seemed to enjoy the whole thing. This was a few years ago now.
Well I finally tried it awhile ago and it was actually REALLY good. All the moisture and freshness of a vinaigrette but without the sodium or preservatives in a bottled dressing.
So, if you want a fresh and healthy substitute, try it some time. Just a few squeezes of fresh lemon drizzled a few times around your bowl. Maybe next time I’ll try adding some seasonings to fresh lemon juice to make a “real” dressing. I’ll let you know how it goes.
