Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette

 This is a very refreshing vinaigrette and goes with just about any salad!


You might think a lemon is a lemon but a Meyer lemon is actually a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange.  It was Frank Nicholas Meyer who brought this fruit back from China.


Recipe:  Approx. 1 3/4 Cup

  • 1/2 Cup About 3 Juiced Meyer Lemon
  • 1 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Champagne Vinegar
  • 1 Large or 1 Tablespoon Minced Shallot
  • 1 Clove Garlic Minced
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt


 Mince the garlic and shallots in a food processor or by hand and add everything else and blend.  You can also just add everything to a jar and shake well.  It will separate just shake before use.

Meyer lemons are extremely high in Vitamin C thus being a great antioxidant with cells rejuvenating abilities. They also help with inflammation and arthritis.  Add the juice in water to tones the liver and stimulate enzyme production.

        A pingback is just a little note you add to the bottom of your post that says, “Shared at the Paleo AIP Recipe Roundtable” and you link that to my site.

        I wanted to let you know that I highlighted this recipe as one of my favorites from last week. So many people haven’t tried meyer lemons and they’re missing out! Your recipe is a great introduction. If you want to share a new recipe this week, your homemade grape juice fits the autoimmune protocol and looks like lots of fun:

    I made this last night and used just a little less EVOO, skipped the garlic and shallots, and instead added a little bit of whole fennel seeds and dried chopped onion – it was divine! Thank you so much for the recipe!
