I’ve been cooking, making new things and all, but never remember to have the camera until I’m nearly done with it.

Also, Spring is here, the garden is planted with salad greens and English peas and I’m all bouncing up and down, checking it twice a day to see if anything is up yet. It’s been a WHOLE WEEK since planting! Why isn’t anything up yet? When will I be able to cut fresh greens and steam some peas and have those delicious salad lunches of mesclun mix and peas and a sprinkling of queso fresco and warm lemon-garlic vinagrette? NOT SOON ENOUGH. I have salt issues, and can’t have commercial salad dressings, indeed why would I want it, with this incredibly easy to make dressing?

Lemon Garlic Vinagrette enough for 1 big lunch salad

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 few grindings black pepper, coarse
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/2 teaspoon sugar
a couple of squeezes fresh lemon juice
Warm the olive oil in a small skillet and add the garlic. Let it sinner for a few minutes but don’t brown the garlic as that will make it bitter. Add the black pepper anytime in there. Turn off the heat, add the juice, sugar and zest. Let sit for a few minutes, stir, and pour over your salad.
This is also excellent with some chopped fresh oregano added, if you think of it.
