Hometown Recipes: Refreshing Fig and Orange Vinaigrette

by Erin Walgamuth

My family and I were at our friend’s Rose and David’s house for a wonderful get-together last weekend. As usual, we all had a wonderful time visiting with our old friends and thoroughly enjoying the fantastic food made by Rose.Erin Walgamuth

I couldn’t get enough of the salad she put together with her homemade vinaigrette, which was simple to make and very refreshing. I liked the vinaigrette so much that I made it last night and we had it on our salad, yum! I did have to change it up a bit however as Rose used Blood Orange olive oil in the mix and I don’t have any, booboo! Of course, I am going to hunt some down a.s.a.p., and I will let you know where I find it!

I tossed together mixed baby salad greens, baby spinach and arugula in a large bowl. I added fresh blueberries, crumbled gorgonzola cheese and some walnuts and tossed with the dressing, lightly coating the ingredients. It was delicious and I will make the vinaigrette often as my family loves it.

Thank you Rose!

Note- Over the holidays I visited the Oil & Vinegar store at the Valencia Town Center Mall, it is fantastic! You can purchase fig balsamic vinegar there as well as many other flavors of vinegar and oils. I will look to see if they have blood orange olive oil and let you know, but in the meantime you can use fresh oranges or tangerines.

 

Makes a bit over ¾ cup of vinaigrette

½ cup extra virgin olive oil

1/8 cup fig balsamic vinegar

5 tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice

1 pinch sea salt or to taste
