This homemade lemon vinaigrette recipe contains no processed sugars. I used a tiny bit of maple syrup to balance out the tartness of the lemon juice. You could probably also use honey, but I used maple syrup to keep it vegan. 🙂 If you like homemade dressing recipes, then you may also like this post.
