Light Lemon Olive Oil Salad Dressing

This lemon olive oil salad dressing is a base recipe that you can make up different each time with a variety of herbs. Have to admit though that I almost never put any herbs in the dressing.  I love the fresh vegetables as they are with the simple olive oil and lemon juice dressing.  If I want herbs I prefer fresh herbs in my salad.
What makes this light is the addition of water which also makes it more alkalizing.


1 cup cold pressed olive oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1/4 – 1 tsp.Himalayan salt
Few drops of liquid stevia


1 – 3 tsp. basil
1/2 – 1 tsp. marjoram
1/4 tsp. rosemary
2 tbsp. fresh mint (or 2 tsp. dried) for a mint dressing


  1. Put all ingredients into a blender; blend till smooth.
  2. Put in a jar with a lid and refrigerate till using.
