Yield: 2C


For the vinaigrette

  • 1 ½ C Grapeseed oil
  • ¼ C apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ C lemon juice
  • ¼ C Massey orange blossom honey
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp poppy seed
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp lemon zest

In a blender, add oil, vinegar, lemon juice, honey, and mustard and a little bit of water (do not add poppy seeds yet).  Turn blender on low and begin emulsifying the oil until a slightly thick opaque dressing forms.  Stir in the poppy seeds and season with salt to taste.  Enjoy.

As a side note, this vinaigrette works great in a shaved fennel and citrus salad. We use the following:

  • Fennel bulb
  • Easter egg radishes
  • Torn basil leaves
  • Toasted hazelnuts
  • Cara Cara orange segment
  • Navel orange segments
  • Ruby Red grapefruit segments
