What Type Of Salad Suits This Recipe?
I made this recipe to go on my chickpea salads. The addition of the sumac is middle eastern inspired (usually sprinkled on top of hummus). The chilli powder is also a nice compliment to the sumac. I therefore recommend to pair this healthy homemade salad dressing recipe with a chickpea salad. You can check out some of my chickpea salad recipes below:

Can I add more olive oil?
Yes of course! I would recommend adding more olive oil if you don't like the tanginess of lemon.
I don't want to add the sumac and the chilli powder
If you aren't pairing this salad with chickpeas or another middle eastern inspired salad, the chilli powder and sumac may not be a good match. You can still make this recipe with just the lemon, garlic, and olive oil
