Lemon vinaigrette

  • 1/2 cup Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Lemon juice Freshly squeezed
  • 2 tbsp Green onions
  • 1 tsp Honey Or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Poppy seeds Optional
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger powder
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste


  • 6 cups Spring greens Combination of lettuce, arugula and spinach
  • 1 cup Mini cucumbers Sliced into circles


  • 1/2 cup Nuts I used combination of toasted almonds and pecans


  • In a large salad bowl, make the lemon vinaigrette by whisking together olive oil, lemon juice, green onions, honey, poppy seeds, garlic powder, ginger powder, salt, pepper.
  • Add Spring greens, mini cucumbers and toss until combined.
  • Sprinkle nuts on top and serve immediately.


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Tastes best when served immediately. Leftovers cannot be stored for later because the salad will become soggy. However, you can store the salad and dressing separately for 2 days in the fridge and mix right before serving.
