Two Easy Recipes

1. Easy and very good vinegarette:

In a large jar mix together:

-- a lot of cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
-- fresh lemon juice from 1-2 lemons, mixed with honey (dissolve the honey into the lemon juice beforehand by stirring rapidly)
-- herbs de provence (dried, a lot-- oregano, marjoram, etc.)
-- fresh minced garlic
-- a little salt
-- a little black pepper

Shake like a polaroid picture and serve.

* Variations: minced onion, chopped peppers, fresh herbs, pure maple syrup instead of honey
