Make lemon-chive vinaigrette for fish or chicken

The perfect vinaigrette dressing for fish? For chicken? For both? The answer is lemons and chives. The combination of lemon zest and lemon juice shine in this recipe for vinaigrette, which only takes two minutes to prepare! Fresh chives, a good source of vitamin A, impart a mild onion flavor which makes this not only a flavorful salad dressing but, as Kevin Carey of Verrill Farm tells us, a terrific marinade for fish and chicken. It's perfect for basting anything you might want to cook on the grill.

INGREDIENTS:

* zest of 2 lemons
* ¼ cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
* ½ tsp salt
* ¼ tsp black pepper
* ¼ tsp garlic, chopped

* ¼ cup corn oil

Special Equipment

* microplane/zester
* citrus juicer or strainer
* glass jar with tight-fitting lid

HOW-TO:
