Tangy Orange Juice Salad Dressing

This tasty orange juice salad dressing will keep in the refrigerator for up to two days so if you like to make salads, you might want to make extra and use some today and some tomorrow. Use fresh orange juice in this orange salad dressing because it is the main flavor in the salad. You can squeeze your own just before making the dressing. Balsamic vinegar has a slightly sweet flavor which will complement the tangy orange and go nicely with the extra-virgin olive oil.

It is up to you how much salt and pepper to add. Just add a little and you can taste the orange juice salad dressing again and add more if you need to. That is a better approach that adding too much anyway, since it is easier to add more than remove any excess. This is a very simple dressing, in that it only requires three ingredients, plus some salt and black pepper to round out the flavor.

If you are new to making salad dressing recipes this might be a nice one to put together. There is really nothing that can go wrong.

Orange juice, balsamic vinegar, extra-virgin olive oil, salt and black pepper combine to make this tangy orange salad dressing. Try it over greens, spinach, kale, whatever you want, or even have it with rice or couscous to make a grain salad. The bright citrusy flavor of the orange is great, and it is not too sweet and not too bitter.
