Printable Recipe

Prep time: less than 5 minutes

Note: Great with delicate greens or hardier salad ingredients.

1 cup orange juice
Juice of 2 lemons
Juice of 1 ½ limes
¼ cup white wine vinegar
¼ cup liquid honey
¼ cup vegetable stock or water
¼ cup vegetable oil
Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend for 2 minutes. Taste for seasonings. If you need to add anything, blend for another 30 seconds.

Keeps in the fridge for a week. Just reblend or whisk before using.

Chef’s note: To get more juice from limes and lemons let them come to room temperature or microwave for a few seconds to take the chill out. Roll them on the counter with some force from the palm of your hand to loosen the juice from the pulp.
