Lemon Oil Dressing

This is the dressing that keeps me from craving sweets.  I love salad, but picking a non-carb dressing can be tricky.  Store bought dressings tend to contain soybean oil as their first ingredient. Then usually most of them have too many carbs or too much sodium.  So now, I make my own.

My salad usually has baby romaine lettuce, 1/2 Roma tomato, 1/4 avocado, handful of sunflower seeds, and shredded carrots.  Occasionally, I add pepper jack cheese.

I like to make a dressing with 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon and 3/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  I add 1/4 tsp basil, 1/4 tsp minced garlic,sprinkle of sea salt, sprinkle of onion powder and 1/2 packet of Splenda Naturals (stevia and erythritol)

Shake well.  I refrigerate this for later use.  It seems to be better when it is cold.
