fresh orange vinaigrette

When it comes to salad dressing, I’m more of an oil and vinegar type of girl. Every once in a while I like to mix it up with different flavors, and since the store-bought dressings are usually expensive and filled with mystery additives, I like to make my own.   

Fresh orange vinaigrette, which I made on a whim, just happens to be a new favorite of mine. It’s light, fresh and citrusy – perfect for spring/summer salads.

Fresh Orange Vinaigrette (adapted from AllRecipes)

1/4 cup fresh orange juice (1 orange, depending on how juicy it is)
2 tbs of balsamic vinegar
1 tbs Dijon mustard
2 tsp honey
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste


Combine all ingredients and stir vigorously with a whisk until smooth.

I bet it’d be good with this too. Or on a strawberry salad for added fruitiness.

    I agree, I make all dressing from scratch, too many weird additives in store bought. This looks delicious! I'm a fan of lime or lemon based vinaigrettes, so I'm sure I'll like orange too :)
