I’ve had a kale salad obsession lately and have been making this dressing often to throw together a quick salad with dinner. My favorite way to serve it is over simple chopped kale greens with red onion, tomato, and parmesan cheese or parmesan crisps on top.

Of course, this lemon salad dressing will pair well with any leafy greens you desire and will stay good in the fridge for about 3-5 days in a jar or salad dressing shaker with lid.

Speaking of a salad shaker, if you need a suggestion for a nice one, consider this OXO Good Grips salad dressing shaker! It’s super high-quality, and the best part – it doesn’t leak or drip. Check out my full review of this shaker here!

Tips to making a great lemon honey salad dressing:

  • As far as the process goes, I like adding my ingredients to a bowl and whisking it well to emulsify and get things really blended. You could definitely use a salad dressing shaker instead.
  • I have to be honest and say that when I make this dressing I usually just eyeball measurements and taste along the way. It’s highly adaptable to change according to your taste, which is why I love making salad dressings at home.

pouring dressing into a salad bowl

This snappy lemon salad dressing is so easy to make and addicting!

I love the combination of honey and lemon along with the garlic and vinegar. It’s balanced, fresh, and yummy.

I could eat this salad every day, and sometimes I do! LOL! 😂  I think my family is sick of kale salad by now, but it’s my fave, especially with a bright dressing like this one.

Check out what my teammate Jenna had to say about this salad dressing recipe:

“What a fresh, fun, summery flavor! I made this and put it on my kale slaw mix I found at Walmart and it was the perfect addition! It has such a fresh flavor, and I loved the use of the honey and Dijon in this to slightly offset the acidity and sourness of the lemon and vinegar.

I also LOVE the dressing shaker featured in the post, and now I need one too. This is most certainly such a great dressing for a kale salad. I think it would make a great addition to a pasta salad too in place of Italian dressing, YUM!”


Here’s how to prep salads for the week ahead!

    Sounds yummy! Will be making this tonight.

    The dressing sounds really good. I’ve never made kale salad before (only cooked for greens), but enjoyed it in restaurants. Do you have to massage the kale or use a special variety?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I think this is curly kale. I buy the prechopped bags as they are inexpensive at my store (frys-Kroger) and your get a lot of it, without having to remove the inner stem.
      Yes you can massage this dressing in it using your hands to soften. I just toss well most of the time.

        Thank you; love all your posts!

        • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

          Aw thanks Kathy!!

    How long do you think this will stay good on the fridge? Thanks

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! It looks like this is good for 3-5 days in the fridge! Hope that helps!

  4. Julianne916

    I love that shaker too! I also have the larger one with black ring, but the green one gets more use. It’s the perfect size for a batch of salad dressing or sugar syrup for coffee drinks

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh fun! Thanks for sharing 🥰

    Just made this, swapping the juice of 2 small limes for the lemon. Delicious!
