Homemade Olive Oil & Lemon Dressing (Ladolemono)

I love salad dressings, they always gives your food and tastebuds a special surprise.  🙂  This is a very old salad dressing recipe which I have made quite often.  What makes this dressing even stronger is that once all the ingredients are combined it needs to be set aside for about a week.  Once opened the…
