The sun has finally returned to Southern California! I swear, we were still using our heater up until last week! So strange! But I’m happy for the warmer weather because it means grilling and eating dinner outside! My mom is growing veggies, but they won’t be ready until late summer, but she does have lemon and orange trees (well, it’s her neighbors’ trees, but she trades avocados for them), so I went over and picked some fruit for a spring Citrus Vinaigrette Salad Dressing. This vinaigrette is so good! It has a bit of garlic and lemon pepper, so it’s a bit spicy, but with the all the citrus flavoring, it’s perfect for spring! I used our fruit picker to pick the lemons. It’s harder than it looks! You have to try to not take the whole tree off with the fruit (oops!) and not shake the tree so much that fruit just falls off. My mom got the picker for her avocado tree, but the avocados aren’t doing as well this year because of the drought. Hopefully, with all the rain we received, we’ll be eating lots of guacamole next year. While I was there, I helped my mom with some gardening and helped prep the back porch for summer. It’s not back breaking work, but I knew I would definitely feel it later, and I did! So when we were finished I took a couple TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain to help with the muscle aches and pains. Do you have any citrus trees in your yard? Or your neighbor’s yard? Here’s the recipe for the salad dressing:
- 3 Tb fresh squeezed orange juice
- 2 Tb fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 Tb Dijon mustard
- 2 Tb honey
- 2 Tb extra virgin olive oil
- ⅛ tsp salt
- ⅛ tsp pepper
- Whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl.
- It's that easy!
- Tip: Use the frozen cubes of garlic. So much easier.
- Tip: Double the recipe if serving a large family/crowd. My photos show a double batch.
- Keep refrigerated.
The salad is a simple salad with arugula, oranges, walnuts, and feta cheese. I picked up my TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain and Extra Strength TYLENOL® at Target.
