It’s easy to make this delicious citrus vinaigrette in under 5 minutes! It’s a wonderful dressing you’ll enjoy on your mixed green salads!
If you’re looking for a delicious, light and ridiculously EASY Vinaigrette, bursting with citrus flavor, then may I suggest this Citrus Vinaigrette? I made this easy salad dressing from scratch, to use on a mixed green salad I made last year. It’s so easy to make, and has a light, refreshing citrus flavor that paired well with the salad.
How To Make Citrus Vinaigrette
To make the vinaigrette, whisk olive oil, fresh squeezed orange juice, white wine vinegar, garlic powder, orange zest, salt and pepper in a small bowl until fully combined.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate the dressing for a couple hours to let the flavors fully develop. Once that is done, simply serve the citrus vinaigrette with a great tasting mixed green salad. See how EASY it is to make this salad dressing?
Maybe you would like to try my recipe for Spring Greens with Citrus Vinaigrette. The salad features fresh orange slices, feta cheese, roasted almonds, cranberries, and red onions. The pairing of the salad with this citrus vinaigrette is lovely,
Sure hope you will try making this citrus vinaigrette salad dressing. It’s a great dressing – using fresh ingredients, and without all the chemicals and shelf-stabilizers typically found in processed salad dressings. I think you will really like this!
