Cut the lemons and limes in half. Use Zulay’s lemon lime squeezer to extract all the juices into a medium sized bowl. Add the oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper. No blender needed. Simply stir, pour over your salad and enjoy!
You can also mix all the ingredients in a shaker cup or glass mason jar with a secure lid. Tighten the lid, shake vigorously until the olive oil and lemon/lime juices are well blended, about 1 minute of shaking.
Your homemade salad dressing can be stored in the refrigerator, using your air-tight container, for up to a week.
