Orange Balsamic Vinaigrette


Just you wait till you try this vinaigrette; it’s so good you might very well end up licking the plate clean. Or the bowl. Or the jar. And definitely the spoon too.

Serve it over a simple side salad or go all out with the original salad this dressing was made for with our beet salad.

You can purchase salad dressing shakers, or just grab a mason jar and mix it up right in the jar.

Ingredient Notes

An overhead view of the ingredients needed to make our simple orange balsamic vinaigrette.
  • Orange Zest & Juice: Grab a single fresh orange for this. You’ll want to zest it first, and then juice it. You can even play around with various varieties of oranges like Cara-Cara, blood oranges, or even a tangerine.
  • Balsamic Vinegar: Use a good quality balsamic vinegar for the best flavor.
  • Olive Oil: With dressings you do taste the flavor so be sure to use a good quality extra virgin olive oi for best results.
  • Dijon Mustard: adds just a little bite. Dijon is preferred over yellow mustard for its more complex flavor that isn’t as blunt and sharp as yellow.
  • Sugar: For those wanting to replace sugar, honey works great.

Storage Instructions

Homemade vinaigrettes can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks. Simply shake or stir before using.
