Orange Vinaigrette Dressing

Happy 4th of July! I am feeling so blessed today to be able to live in the United States of America and have the freedoms that I enjoy every single day. I am unbelievably grateful for those who have died to protect those freedoms. My heart is full of gratitude today! Happy Birthday America!

In honor of this holiday, I want to share a yummy dressing recipe that is out of this world. After visiting my local farmer’s market, I had a ginormous bag of oranges and no idea what to do with all of them. I had also bought a huge bag of mixed greens, had goat cheese leftover from this recipe, and pine nuts leftover from this recipe. So I decided to whip up a little orange vinaigrette.
This dressing poured over mixed greens, goat cheese and pine nuts is to-die-for. It has just the right blend of sweetness from the orange juice and honey but a tang from the balsamic and orange zest. Definitely a winner in my house! I hope you’ll give it a try this holiday weekend! Happy 4th of July!
