I really appreciate all ideas.
have you tried using zest instead of juice?

That would have to depend on the recipe. Not many people like eating raw lemon zest.

I have made dressing with a drop of lemon oil, water and oil. Plus garlic and other seasonings. It wasn't too bad.

Sometimes I do this to "brighten up" the flavor of my salads: Cut some fresh ginger, and boil it in a little water with brown sugar. Mix in it a little of mustard and pepper.
Yes, it is a little sweet, but I love the taste!
You can add ( to your taste) herbs, garlic, onion, coriander, anything you like ...

What about mayo with curry powder, a touch of sugar & a little soy milk to thin it out or maybe a peanut dressing, some peanut butter, soy milk & a little sugar or soy, simple syrup & oil?

I would use just a very good quality extra virgin olive oil with a little salt and pepper if needed.

Thanks, GB. I will try that today for lunch. Should have thought of it myself. I have some fresh thyme and basil I can chop up and add to some wonderful olive oil I got for a Christmas gift. That doesn't contain any acids or spices that will bother him. Glad you are back!
