Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe:

Recipe Type: Salad and Salad Dressing, Oranges, Balsamic Vinegar, Olive Oil
Yields: 2 1/2 cups
Prep time: 10 min


1/3 cup good-quality aged balsamic vinegar
1/3 fresh-squeezed orange juice*
2 to 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
Freshly-ground black pepper
2 cups extra-virgin olive oil

* I prefer using fresh-squeezed orange juice, but the bottled orange juice will also work.


In a medium bowl or food processor, whisk together balsamic vinegar, orange juice, sugar, and pepper.

Add olive oil in a thin stream, whisking until emulsified. By gradually whisking or blending the oil into the vinegar, you create an emulsion (a mixture of two liquids that usually don't combine smoothly).

Makes approximately 2 1/2 cups.

Too much salad dressing will weight down the salad ingredients and mask their flavors. The dressing's role is to highlight not to overpower the salad ingredients. A general rule is 1/4 cup of dressing for 6 cups of greens. As soon as your salad is mixed, taste a leaf to see if there is sufficient dressing. If not, drizzle some more over the salad, a tablespoon at a time; toss and taste again.
