Lemon Vinaigrette

Lemon dressings often incorporate flavors, such as herbs, garlic, and anchovy, but sometimes a simple lemon vinaigrette is all you want.

There are tons of artificial flavors added to store bought stuff and we never want that on Keto. We are always looking for easy recipes to make right? In my search for making a tasty salad , I ended up making a recipe for its dressing as well . After all what’s a good salad without a dressing!!

Why Lemon?

  • Lemons are acidic in nature but are alkalizing for the body, helping to restore body’s PH balance.
  • Being rich in Vit C and flavonoids that helps fighting against infections like flu and cold.
  • They are one of the greatest element for liver as it helps in detoxifying/flushes the uric acid for system.

    thus eliminating waste from the body.
