The Simplest Salad Dressing


{blurry photo, but you get the idea}

Lately I've been loving this simple lime salad dressing. It's tasty, fresh, homemade, and doesn't require any extra dishes! Oh, and it only has 4 ingredients!! 

I've always loved the idea of homemade dressing, but I hate dirtying extra dishes and I never seem to go through an entire bottle of homemade dressing before I forget about it in the fridge. A couple weeks ago I discovered a perfect solution to this dilemma. 

Here's what I do: After chopping up all salad ingredients and putting them in a bowl, I simply add some olive oil, lime juice, salt, and pepper, then mix everything together with tongs. There are no exact measurements, I just add everything by sight. (Hint: Start small, then add more little by little if you're unsure about having no exact measurements.)

It's so delicious and so fresh.

That's my kinda dressing! More often than not, I use lime (as you have here) or just lemon, salt, pepper and olive oil too. The simplest things really are the best - you've got me wishing it was summer here with this post! :)
