|Orange Vinaigrette over Romaine lettuce with orange slices and fresh mozzarella|
My host who is organizing my group is Tina from Moms Crazy Cooking. Thank you Tina for hosting!
My assignment for this month was The Tasty Cheapskate where Jeanie blogs about frugal food recipes. While I was sorely tempted to make her recipe for Chocolate Chip Brownies, I decided to go with a delicious citrus vinaigrette instead. (I'm still making the brownies, though!)
Here is Jeanie's recipe:
Makes several servings
1/2 C sugar
1/3 C orange juice
1/2 C rice wine vinegar
1 C canola oil (olive would work too, but will add a distinct taste to your dressing; I liked the canola because it didn't get in the way of the orange)
2 Tbsp dry Italian dressing
1. Shake it up in a glass jar and let it stand for 30 minutes.
While I would have liked to add a few more veggies to my salad, I was out of stock so I kept it simple. The flavors in the vinaigrette are delicious and refreshing. Thank you Jeanie for a great recipe and a great alternative to the same ol' ranch dressing for this salad eater!
