Fall in love with lemons
As I started to put together this giant list of healthy lemon recipes I realized just how frequently I cook and bake with lemons. Lemon juice (and zest) just happen to sneak their way into everything from breads and muffins to dressings, main dishes, and of course, cakes, cookies and bars. It adds freshness and acidity to things like dressings & marinades, plus adds bright flavor to sweet treats.
For ease, I broke these recipes down into:
Fruit & veggie salads
Quinoa & pasta salads
Sandwiches & wraps
Dressings & sauces
Snacks, apps & sides
And incredible desserts
If you’ve ever wondered “what can I do with excess lemons?” the answer is to choose a recipe from each of these categories and go have yourself a lemon party.
