Just a quick post - I've been making this lemon-dill salad dressing this week, inspired by a salad that Alex's stepmother made while we were in El Paso. She used a Knorr seasoning packet and though the ingredients were listed in German, I could taste the dill & garlic. So here goes:

Fresh lemon juice
Dash of white wine or champagne vinegar
A little Dijon mustard
Dill (fresh or dried - I used dried)
Extra virgin olive oil (I've been using Fairway's Mexican Mission)
Garlic powder
Salt and pepper

Add ingredients together and whisk to taste. It's really light and refreshing and the mustard helps to bind everything together. It's great on cucumbers and white mushrooms sliced thinly!
