Citrus-Basil Vinaigrette

Citrus-Basil Vinaigrette

Karen R.

"This dressing is lovely yellow color, and we use it on a mixed green salad (mixed Romaine and European greens), tossed with small broccoli and cauliflower florets, raisins or sweetened dried cranberries, and shredded Cheddar or crumbled Gorgonzola cheese. The sweet-tart zestiness of the dressing perks up the salad! The yield depends on how much salad dressing you prefer. For us, this recipe makes enough dressing for about 4 large salads."

My DH and I really liked this dressing! I did make 1 change though - I added 1 tablespoon of vinegar rather than 1 teaspoon. Delicious!

I thought it was light and refreshing although I thought it was lacking flavor. I thought there was too much oil at first so I added more orange juice. I think it needs something but I'm not s...

I used this with lettuce, dried cranberry and mandarin orange salad. Made a few changes by omitting basil and had no lemmon zest so used lime zest and splash of lime juice. Very light and tasty...

This dressing is wonderful! I doubled the amount of vinegar and instead of basil added some poppy seeds. I served it over mixed greens, thinly sliced red onion, orange segments, and sliced almo...

This dressing is excellent. Doesn't need anything changed. I made it about 4 hours ahead and strained out the basil right before serving. I put it on mixed baby greens, dried cranberries, tang...

Too sweet. Too citrusy. Even Hubs, who occasionally likes a dressing with a little sweetness, agreed. Could be very good, lightening up on both the honey and the juices and perhaps even elimi...

I loved this! I used lime juice and lime zest instead of lemon because I love limes! I also left the chopped basil in the dressing. I used this as a topping for a greek salad with feta cheese. T...
