Homemade Lemon Vinaigrette aka Ladolemono

        Ladolemono translates roughly into “lemon olive oil” which are the two main ingredients of this bright, light and super flavorful salad dressing.  It takes just a few minutes to whip up and really packs a flavor punch.


  • 1 c. extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ c. lemon juice, preferably freshly squeezed
  • ½ c. Parmesan cheese, optional
  • 1 T. red wine vinegar (or distilled white vinegar)
  • 1 tsp. Greek oregano
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. thyme

Combine the lemon juice, oregano, garlic, salt, pepper, and thyme together in a bowl.  Slowly whisk in the olive oil and continue to whisk until well blended.  Serve immediately or it can be stored in a covered jar for up to 10 days.  If using the Parmesan, stir in right before serving.

Another way to serve this dressing is to add 3-4 ice cubes into the jarred dressing.  Put the lid on and shake vigorously for a few minutes.  This will cause the dressing to emulsify and become creamy.  Just remove the ice cubes before serving.  So yummy!

This dressing goes surprisingly well on a classic wedge salad.


     This dressing is not only for salads.  Use it on any kind of seafood such as shrimp.


Or use it marinate asparagus.



Or on some chicken.
