Hometown Recipes: Orange Cilantro Vinaigrette

By Erin Walgamuth

My family and I went to my sister’s house for Mother’s Day as has been our tradition for many years. She asked me to bring a salad and dressing. I purchased mixed greens, red onion, tomato, cucumber, a nicely ripened avocado and raw sliced almonds on Saturday.

That evening as I watched Avatar with my daughter I realized that I had forgotten to buy salad dressing. I had the ingredients for balsamic vinaigrette, but that didn’t sound good.  I had a bowl full of oranges…citrus vinaigrette? That definitely sounded good!

Here is the recipe I came up with.

Makes 1 cup of vinaigrette

Orange Cilantro Vinaigrette

½ cup of freshly squeezed orange juice, about 1 large orange
¼ cup of Canola Oil or Olive Oil
¼ cup of Rice Vinegar
1 teaspoon of Toasted Sesame Oil
Small pinch of salt or to taste
½ teaspoon of honey
1 tablespoon of finely chopped fresh cilantro

Whisk all ingredients in a glass measuring cup or place in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid and shake well to blend

This recipe will generously cover 8 cups of greens. You can make it the day before you wish to use it and keep in the refrigerator until ready to dress the salad.

Add-in suggestions for the salad:

Fresh orange sections
Mandarin oranges
Toasted sesame seeds
Grilled chicken strips

Feel free to add more or less of the dressing ingredients to customize your salad. Have fun and enjoy!
