Lemon-Thyme Vinaigrette

I was recently at a dinner party and one of the guests brought a salad that everyone loved.  She said the main ingredients of the dressing were lemon, thyme, and honey.  A few days later I wanted to recreate the salad so I googled “lemon honey thyme dressing” and found a recipe from Food & Wine magazine that is light, refreshing and easy to make. 

I tossed the salad with steamed asparagus, apple, Havarti cheese and pumpkin seeds but you could add whatever you would like.  Make the dressing with olive or canola oil, and adjust the ingredients according to your taste.  I like to reduce the amount of oil altogether and increase the amount of lemon and zest.
