I love lemons. Anything fresh, citrusy, and tangy is my kind of food! I always have a big jar of freshly squeezed lemons in my fridge.
My favorite way to get fresh lemon juice is to use my electric citrus juicer. In minutes I have tons of delicious and fresh juice to have fun with! I put it in homemade salad dressings, marinades, on roasted veggies, to make techina and hummus, in desserts, and my favorite summery treat lemonade.
There are endless possibilities of sweet and savory uses for lemon, so here is an entire menu inspired by this humble fruit!
