Orange Salad Dressing

I was starving by 4:00 this afternoon. What I wanted to do was get into the leftover Homemade Crunchy Beef Tacos. Surprisingly, the taco shells do not get soggy or tough or anything when microwaved the next day. They were kind of broken, but I could have easily nuked the taco meat and used it as a dip.
Nope. I marched right on down to the kitchen and whipped up this salad. There’ll be no living with me, if I continue on this Holier-than-Thou course.
A friend and client of Bill’s gave us an enormous box of beautiful oranges for Christmas. Normally, I don’t bother to buy oranges at all. In fact, I never really think about them in the first place.
But since I’ve been taking the time to cut them into medallions and add them to our salads, I’ve become quite a fan.
Most of my dishes come from Goodwill. While I was hunting through them to find something pretty, I came upon one lone plate that actually had oranges on it. Cool.
I’m such a creature of habit that, 9 times out of 10, I will resort to my standard lemon-garlic vinaigrette. But since I was craving leftover tacos, I thought maybe I could jazz up my salad a little bit.
So, I went on to Pinterest and found this recipe. It’s very good, and it lends a sweet/tangy finish to my Chicken Salad.
It comes from a cute Colorado couple named Jordan and Clark at The Fitchen.com. Thanks, guys!
1/3 cup orange juice (fresh is best!)
½ Tablespoon honey
2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
½ Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
¼ teaspoon sea salt (I love the pink Himalayan – it’s so pretty and rich in minerals). If you click on this, it will take you to a fascinating article about it. I thought it was from an old sea that was 250 million years old. Turns out it’s BILLIONS OF YEARS OLD!!! Wow!
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.
Mix in a blender or just whisk vigorously in a measuring cup (if you heat the honey a few seconds in the microwave, it will be easier to mix).
Store in a mason jar for up to a month, they say.
You might want to change up your routine. Try this – I think you’ll like it!
