I think I’m in the minority here, but in general, I pass on salad dressings. I don’t really love most of them and this is probably really unAmerican, but I hate ranch. {maybe I shouldn’t admit that?!} I use to LOVE it, but when I changed the way I ate, I became disgusted with it {I’m sure there is something wrong with me, it’s fine}.

Anyway, one dressing that I do love is vinaigrette’s, especially fruity ones! This Citrus Vinaigrette is perfect for all my favorite summer salads and a little bit packs a huge punch. Plus it’s light and doesn’t overpower the other players in your salad!

How To Make Homemade Vinaigrette

Salad dressings really are so simple to make and they store great in the fridge. I encourage you to explore making your own always vs buying the prepackaged ones at the store. The store bought kind may seem more convenient, but I promise, homemade is easy and so much better for you! It’s also better for your wallet too!

  • To start, make sure you have a glass jar with a lid that screws on tight. These are my favorite glass jars!
  • You literally just measure and pour all the ingredients straight into the glass jar {100% pure orange juice, 100% pure lime juice, apple cider vinegar, raw honey, salt & pepper}, place the lid on tight and shake.
  • Make sure you shake it well each time before pouring over your salad.

I love a side salad of spinach and fresh berries drizzled in this dressing, but it’s also delicious with my favorite Blackened Chicken Bites on top, making it a main course salad!
