Citrus Vinaigrette


To me, this dressing is the perfect summer vinaigrette.  The taste is light and crisp and allows the flavor of summer-fresh fruits and vegetables to shine.  Originally, I created this to compliment a salad with mint, feta, and blackberries although it is perfect whenever you want a hint of citrus with just enough sweetness and tang to make it interesting.  Pairs well with fish, too.

As I type, I am thinking that a bit of fresh mint would add  a nice dimension to this dressing…and I just happen to have plenty of that in my garden!

Consider pairing the above-linked salad with Honey Lime Chicken for a fresh, light, yet very satisfying meal.
