Lemon Vinaigrette

Cuisinart original

This can very easily be your go-to salad dressing for a bowl full of fresh greens and veggies.
We also love it on more composed salads, such as the Sliced Asparagus Salad with Pine Nuts.

1    lemon (zested)
¼   cup fresh lemon juice
2   teaspoons Dijon mustard
