about 1 cup

Use this vinaigrette to dress any combination of mixed greens.


  • 1 medium clove garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons fresh orange juice, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


Peel the garlic clove and smash with the side of a chef’s knife. Using a fork, mash the garlic with salt in a small bowl to form a coarse paste. Whisk in the oil. Add the juice, vinegar and mustard; whisk until well blended. Taste and whisk in up to 4 tablespoons more juice to mellow the flavor; season with more salt, if desired.
