I seem to be on a roll using Limoncello in recipes – I guess you can tell I just love it. This vinaigrette is a perfect combination of sweet (Limoncello), tart (lemon juice and zest) and fiery (red pepper flakes). This recipe from Genius Kitchen would also be delicious with seafood.
I served this fresh salad with Capellini with Fresh Tomato Sauce using some of Michigan’s last tomatoes. We have had a beautiful, long summer and still have not had a frost and it is October 10th!
As there are 3 lemon ingredients you need to make this to taste. The original recipe is below – personally I loved it!
- 1/4 cup limoncello
- 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp. lemon zest, grated
- 1-1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard
- 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper flakes
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- salt (optional/to taste)
Combine the first five ingredients together and slowly whisk in the oil. Season to taste with salt. This vinaigrette was very good over a very simple butter lettuce salad with radishes and green onions.
