  • 2 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 1 TBSP Lighthouse Lemonade
  • 1 ½ tsp Bad’Az Za’atar
  • 1/2 – ⅔ tsp of Salt (modify to your taste)
  • ½ tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/1/2 tsp of Mayo *OPTIONAL – I do this when I want a creamier dressing
  • Fresh Ground Pepper, to taste *Optional; this is for the pepper fans in the crowd


  1. Put everything together in a bowl or jar and give it a good stir. (I typically start with less salt and add a bit more at the end, depending on the type of salad and the saltiness of the rest of the meal.
  2. Add it to any mix of veggies. My favourite typically includes a mix of lettuces (iceberg, radicchio, romaine—or whatever I have in my fridge), cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes, mint leaves (chopped up), feta cheese, and toasted pita crisps. (I do the pita crisps if I am feeling fancy or have some pitas I want to use up.)
