Spinach salad on table with Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette.

Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette

This simple, elegant Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette provides a little sweetness (thanks to the honey) and tartness (thanks to the lemon juice and zest) to top almost any leafy green salad, especially our Strawberry Spinach Salad. It’s a mild, lighter dressing that anyone will like.
