This is definitely a go to salad dressing! Sometimes I had dijon mustard to it as well if I want something a little creamier

I make this salad dressing all the time- it goes well with everything!
I love using it on a shaved brussels sprouts salad with dried cranberries, feta, and slivered almond. The mix of textures and flavors is divine.

I kept looking online for no vinegar salad dressings, and all of them used either mayonnaise or Dijon mustard, both of which contained vinegar! (Duh?) This is the first (and so far) only lemon dressing recipe I have found that is completely vinegar free. Thank you. (I also substituted all-fruit orange marmalade for the honey.)
