May 4th is National Orange Juice Day. Here’s something that’s both special and easy to make in less than 15 minutes.

California Olive Ranch sells delicious artisan olive oils, which we often use for vinaigrettes.

They developed this recipe for Orange Juice Vinaigrette, which we love on green salads, fruit salads and avocado salads (a recipe for the latter is below).

Ingredients For 1/2 Cup

  • 6 tablespoons California Olive Ranch extra virgin olive oil (or other)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned rice wine vinegar
  • Pinch each of fresh ground black pepper and kosher salt/coarse salt for seasoning

    1. COMBINE in a blender the orange juice, rice wine vinegar, salt and pepper.

    2. PULSE the blender to dissolve the salt in juice and vinegar.

    3. ADD the olive oil and pulse briefly to incorporate.

    While avocado salad can be as simple as a fan of avocado slices with vinaigrette.

    There are so many delicious ingredients that can be combined into avocado salad and brightened with orange vinaigrette.

    Take your pick of these ingredients to create a mixed salad.
