3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoon high-quality matcha (powdered green tea)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon snipped fresh tarragon
2 cloves garlic, minced
Place the lemon juice in a bowl or in a blender along with the matcha, sea salt and pepper. Whisk together or whir in blender.
Drizzle in the olive oil a little at a time, blending or whisking to form an emulsion. Add the maple syrup, tarragon and garlic and whisk or process until well-blended.
Makes about 1 cup dressing for salad.
