"This dressing is great on my blackened Cajun and pear salad with goat cheese. The tart pop of the dressing complements chicken, grilled fish, and pear!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

coarsely ground herbes de Provence
rice wine vinegar
You’ll never get a good emulsion with the ratio of ingredients in this recipe.This recipe does not totally incorporate all of the vinaigrette ingredients, it separates into layers. This has equal parts lime and orange juice and then “zested orange.” Is this supposed to be an orange vinaigrette or a lime vinaigrette? I mixed this up as written except for using lime zest instead of orange, and it still had very little lime flavor, so I added more lime juice. The dominating flavor is the herbes de provence, and IMO, there’s a little too much of it in this dressing. Do give this some time in the fridge, it will improve the flavor. I make all of my own salad dressings, and this one was a bit of a disappointment. David Hall, sorry for the less than favorable first review of your recipe.
Modified this based off lutzflcat's review. I scaled the recipe to half. Used only lime juice- no orange so I doubled it. Lime zest. No herbs de Provence so I subbed mrs dash herb and garlic. Shook it in a ball jar and it was darn tasty!!!
