Olive Oil & Lemon – a Marinade or Dressing

This works as a basic marinade or basting liquid for chicken, turkey, fish or veal – anything that requires a light touch.  It’ll also work as a salad dressing.


give it a swirl

Olive Oil & Lemon Marinade (enough for a roasting chicken or large fish)


  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Juice and zest from 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp mustard powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Mix ingredients together and let sit for 10 minutes at room temperature before using.  Store in the fridge indefinitely.

FYI – the mustard powder is both a flavoring and binding agent.  Adding it to any dressing will bind the contents.
