Citrus Salad Dressing


Salad dressing (especially the oil based kind) seems like one of those innocent items that can’t possibly contain anything harmful, right? Wrong! Most store-bought salad dressings are made with vegetable oils, soy and preservatives.

The good news is that salad dressing really isn’t that hard to make, especially this super easy, yet super delicious and oh-so-refreshing Citrus recipe. You can serve it atop just about any summer salad. It involves a grand total of three ingredients, takes about one minute to make and can be bottled and refrigerated for a few days.


1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar


In a jar or blender bottle, add all three ingredients.
Close the jar/bottle and shake for about 10 seconds.
Pour over salad or refrigerate and enjoy later (always shake gently before serving).
