One of my favorite way to get the healing benefits of herbs is through food. Homemade salad dressings are a great way to incorproate herbs in your food. There are so many great recipes for dressings but I keep coming back to this one....so here it is ~ my Lemony Rosemary Vinaigrette recipe. With  all the goodness of lemons, rosemary, garlic and olive oil it is not only declicious but good for you too! Be sure you are purschase PURE Extra Virgin Olive Oil ~ Read your labels

Lemony Rosemary Vinaigrette

2 Sprigs of fresh Rosemary finely chopped (stems removed)
1 teaspoon of Sea Salt
½ Coarse Black Pepper
¼ teaspoon of lemon zest (from the fresh lemons in this recipe)
2 cloves of fresh chopped garlic
1 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil ~ EVO
Juice of 2 fresh lemons (about a ½ a cup)
Place the Rosemary, sea salt, coarse ground pepper, lemon zest and garlic in a medium bowl. Mash together with the back of a spoon to make a paste (you may use a mortar or a food process if you have them). Mix in a little of the small amount of the EVO ~ Enough to make a loose paste. Slowly add the lemon juice ~ mixing as you go. Then drizzle in the EVO, blending a little at a time. After all the lemon juice and EVO are added, gently whisk everything together. Let this set for at least 15 minutes. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
