Citrus Honey Vinaigrette

We can't get enough salads lately - lunch, dinner, and even snacks - salads and warm weather just compliment each other perfectly. We keep things interesting by using a variety of homemade salad dressings. This simple vinagrette is one of our favorites. It is incredibly refreshing and works equally well tossed with fresh greens or cucumber and radish slices.

Citrus Honey Vinagrette
1/4 Cup Freshly Squeezed Lemon or Lime Juice
1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1-2 Tablespoons Honey (depending on how sweet/tart you like it)
1 Garlic Clove, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt, plus more to taste

Combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid, shake well. Enjoy.

Here we've tossed some cucumber, radish, green onions, and cilantro in a bit of the vinaigrette - diced avocado is also a nice addition.
