BLT Salad with a Creamy Lemon Chive Dressing

Summertime means long days at the beach, kids home from school, and meals made from fresh ingredients that are most likely cooked on the grill.  
One of my favorite things to do in the Summer is host our friends and family for a cookout (or BBQ if you're from down south)! Nothing says Summer more than gathering around the fire pit, hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, and a drink to cool you off after a long day in the sun!

One of my favorite new recipes is this amazing Creamy Lemon Chive Dressing.  We stopped buying bottled dressings years ago and the recipe goes amazing with my version of a BLT salad!

I've added a special twist with Young Living's Lemon Vitality Essential Oil.  It really adds a wonderful depth and brightness of flavor to the dressing!*  

Check out these facts about Lemon Essential Oil
  • Can be substituted in any recipe that calls for lemon juice, zest, or extract.
  • Adds a zesty flavor with just 1-2 drops!
  • Contains the naturally occurring constituent d-limonene.
  • Aids in digestion.

A powerful punch in such a small bottle! 

*Be sure to store your dressing in a glass jar or bottle.
