Orange Dijon Vinaigrette

Orange Dijon Vinaigrette is a recipe I collected from my friend Deb whom I recently saw at a holiday luncheon where she had brought an arugula and spinach salad with persimmons, orange, and pomegranate for our lunch soiree.  This salad tasted outstanding! Not only was the combination of salad greens and fruit perfect, the dressing made the salad taste even better.

I asked Deb for her vinaigrette recipe and her text to me was hilarious 😀  “Dressing: Dijon, orange juice, Muscat vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, poppy seeds (I make my own so make to taste)… ❤️”  I could absolutely relate to this text! I don’t measure anything either when I am cooking unless I plan to share the recipe on my blog 😀, so I took this information and made my own variation of orange vinaigrette 😊. With the lovely taste of fresh orange juice and the unique flavor of Dijon mustard, this is a delicious vinaigrette that will taste great on any salad.  Give it a try!
