SUMMER VINAIGRETTE

This zingy vinaigrette is a tasty, simple, versatile marinade or dressing, or the “secret ingredient” you can add to just about anything. Use as a marinade for chicken, fish, tofu, a dressing on your salad, your summer pasta salad, or a couple of tablespoons in your homemade summer hummus (see next recipe!)
