Orange Citrus Dressing Or Marinade


My favorite part of cooking is being able to take ordinary food & give it extraordinary flavor with a few simple ingredients. This Orange Vinaigrette Dressing does just that. It also makes for a great marinade.

    7. 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

    9. sea salt & ground black pepper; pinch of each
  • Directions:
    1. Using a medium size mixing bowl whisk orange juice, orange zest, brown sugar & vinegar together.
    2. Add in both oils & continue whisking.

    4. Transfer to a mason jar, cover & refrigerate until ready to use.
