Ooooh lemon! Next to salt and pepper, lemon may be the most commonly used ingredient to make our food POP with flavor! Whether you are lucky enough to have a lemon tree in your backyard, or you pick your lemons up at a farmer’s market or your local store, nothing beats using fresh lemon juice in your cooking! Where I live, we can’t grow lemon trees, so I’m always snatching up bags of them at Trader Joe’s. I love to use them in my baking and cooking.

Here are over 25 AMAZING recipes for gluten-free main dishes and side dishes that all take a little bit of lemon to make!
