Balsamic Orange Vinaigrette The Prudent Homemaker


1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp spicy mustard or dijon mustard
1/4 tsp granulated garlic or garlic powder
1 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp lemon juice (fresh or bottled)
1/8 tsp orange extract (Or 1 Tbsp orange juice)


Whisk all ingredients together in a jar. Pour a little over your lettuce and enjoy!

This would be fantastic with goat cheese and walnuts if you have them. I use edible flowers to add a little something to my spring lettuce; here I’ve used nasturium blossoms; you could use johnny jump-ups, pansies, or chive blossoms if you wish.

I store this dressing in a jar in the refrigerator for a few weeks.
