Blood Orange Vinaigrette Recipe

Blood Orange Vinaigrette
Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: | Makes: 1 2/3 cups

This vivid, citrusy dressing gets sweetness from blood oranges, tartness from lemon juice, and some zing from shallots and whole-grain mustard. Try it on a simple salad of mâche and toasted, slivered almonds, or drizzle it over roasted beets and segmented blood oranges for a light winter salad.
