Whenever I make a new salad recipe, I love to experiment with new dressings. Since it is summertime, I often add fresh fruits and vegetables together for a summery salad. So, what’s a great summer salad dressing? Citrus dressing for salads is fresh with a blend of fresh juice and a few other magic ingredients. Of course, my citrus dressing recipe is oil-free and delicious.
SIMPLE INGREDIENTS FOR CITRUS SALAD DRESSING FOR SALADS
Since oranges and lemons are beautiful and vibrant this time of year, I chose to use a combination of both. With that being said, fresh juice is always better than bottles of juice. So, I juice my own lemons and oranges. In a pinch, bottled juice works, but fresh juice is simply fresh, without any added sugars or preservatives.
Again, simple, clean ingredients are always the goal when making a great dressing. But, taste, texture, and flavor is just as important. I love dressing, and citrus dressing for salads is one of my favorites. In fact, it’s so good I could drink it. So, let’s make a simple dressing you will love for your next summer salad recipe.
- Oranges, fresh squeezed
- Lemon, fresh squeezed
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Whole-grain mustard
- Maple syrup
With this dressing, however, you don’t need a blender or anything other than a whisk or a spoon. The ingredients, for instance, are stirred together and refrigerated until ready for use. That’s it.
CITRUS DRESSING FOR SALADS IS GREAT FOR A VARIETY OF RECIPES
Although I made this dressing for a Fennel Salad with Oranges, any citrus dressing goes well with any salad, but those with fruit bring out the WOW in salads.
