Store bought salad dressing is a thing of the past! It's so easy to whip up a delicious dressing at home, and you can really taste the difference.
When it comes to making your own salad dressing, quality ingredients are essential. Although our Texas Hill Country oils and vinegars make wonderful salad toppers on their own, there are more complex and incredible dressings that can be created by adding a few additional ingredients.
Take our Blood Orange Infused Olive Oil and White Lemon Balsamic Vinegar, for example. Together they make a wonderful citrus vinaigrette, but add a few more ingredients and you have the perfect sesame ginger citrus dressing.
Citrus Lovers Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette with Texas Olive Oil
- ½ tsp: Ginger
- ¼ cup: Green onion
- 1 small clove: Fresh garlic (minced)
- ¼ cup: Soy Sauce
- ¼ cup: Blood Orange Olive Oil
- 2 Tbsp: White Lemon Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 tsp: Tahini paste
- ½ tsp: Sesame seeds
- Salt and Pepper
- 1 tsp: Rice wine vinegar
Blend to Make this Delicious Dressing
If the ingredient list seems long to you, you'll be shocked to hear how easy this dressing is to make! Blend all ingredients in a food processor (or blender) until smooth and creamy. If you prefer a little more texture to your vinaigrette, use a mixing bowl.
That's it. It's really that easy!
This recipe can also be used as a marinade, especially when preparing stir fry proteins!
Top Off Your Salad and Enjoy!
Now it's time to add your vinaigrette to the salad of your choice! We recommend highlighting the Asian dressing with wonton chips for a little crunch. And although you are getting zesty notes with the blood orange olive oil and white lemon vinegar, some citrus supremes add a lovely touch.
Bonus: both the olive oil and vinegar can be used to make even more amazing dressings! The blood orange olive oil, mixed with honey and other ingredients, makes another wonderful dressing/marinade option. And add the white lemon vinegar with our basil infused olive oil, and you've got yourself a delicious basil vinaigrette!
