Citrus-Basil Vinaigrette

Rated as 4.49 out of 5 Stars

"This dressing is lovely yellow color, and we use it on a mixed green salad (mixed Romaine and European greens), tossed with small broccoli and cauliflower florets, raisins or sweetened dried cranberries, and shredded Cheddar or crumbled Gorgonzola cheese. The sweet-tart zestiness of the dressing perks up the salad! The yield depends on how much salad dressing you prefer. For us, this recipe makes enough dressing for about 4 large salads."

I thought it was light and refreshing although I thought it was lacking flavor. I thought there was too much oil at first so I added more orange juice. I think it needs something but I'm not s...

I used this with lettuce, dried cranberry and mandarin orange salad. Made a few changes by omitting basil and had no lemmon zest so used lime zest and splash of lime juice. Very light and tasty...

This dressing is wonderful! I doubled the amount of vinegar and instead of basil added some poppy seeds. I served it over mixed greens, thinly sliced red onion, orange segments, and sliced almo...

I've made this numerous times and everyone asks for the recipe and carries on like they have never had good salad dressing before. It's a keeper! I especially like it with spring greens, yello...

This dressing is excellent. Doesn't need anything changed. I made it about 4 hours ahead and strained out the basil right before serving. I put it on mixed baby greens, dried cranberries, tang...

Too sweet. Too citrusy. Even Hubs, who occasionally likes a dressing with a little sweetness, agreed. Could be very good, lightening up on both the honey and the juices and perhaps even elimi...

I loved this! I used lime juice and lime zest instead of lemon because I love limes! I also left the chopped basil in the dressing. I used this as a topping for a greek salad with feta cheese. T...
