This dressing is delicious on roasted beets with feta and toasted walnuts or a salad of spring mix lettuce with orange segments and goat cheese. This is the first of a series of homemade salad dressings I will be featuring on this site. I want to show everyone how easy and delicious homemade dressings can be.
Tip#1: I always zest any citrus before juicing, even if the recipe doesn’t call for it. I put the zest in a ziplock bag in my fridge and keep until I need it for a recipe.
Tip#2: This dressing will stay fresh in the fridge for about 5 days.
