Mint & Orange Vinaigrette

This is a wonderful sweet vinaigrette salad dressing with a little spicy kick. Fresh orange juice adds a lovely sweet honey like flavor while the mint leaves and chives give the dressing a distinctive spicy edge.

Mint & Orange Vinaigrette


  • Juice of 1/2 large orange
  • 5 mint leaves finely chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped chives
  • 4 tbsp apple cider vinegar or any white wine vinegar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


In a small bowl or bottle place the orange juice, juice of 1 lime, salt and pepper, and vinegar and whisk together.


Add chopped mint, chives and olive oil and whisk into the orange juice. Taste for salt and sourness and adjust accordingly by adding more vinegar if needed.


Serve vinaigrette with any salad of your choice.
