Homemade Salad Sauce cannot beat any other store bought alternatives. Especially a French Vinaigrette. It’s easy to prepare. And best to store in a bottle or jar  (with lid). The word Vinaigrette is already revealing an important part of this Salad Sauce. That is Vinegar. However I use a fresh lemon instead. And I’m afraid I have no solid reason. Why I skip a bit of Vinegar. But I love the mix of Honey, Lemon, Garlic and Oil. Hence this version of a French Classic. That is so good to eat with a Green- or Bean Salad
