Fresh Oregano Dressing

Total time 15 mins

Makes about 1/2 cup (serving size: 1 tbsp.)

If you don't already have savory, oregano dressing stocked up in your refrigerator shelves, you're missing out on the ideal topper to your crisp, summer salad. Lemon juice adds a bright acidity, while the honey calms it with a pinch of sweetness. Finish with vibrant thyme and fresh oregano and voila! You have an A+ salad worth sharing.

  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
