Citrus Sunshine Vinaigrette

Citrus Sunshine Vinaigrette 

Makes: 1 cup 
Prep Time: 3 minutes  

The colour alone of this bright & delicious dressing is enough to keep you coming back for more!  And this vinaigrette comes with some health bonuses! The spice combination of turmeric and black pepper is a natural inflammatory.  Good quality olive oil contains those HDL or cholesterol lowering benefits.  Apple cider vinegar is great for lowering blood glucose levels and lemon juice, amongst other things, is known as a great body detoxifier.   

This dressing tastes delicious on mixed green salads (try it with strawberries & goat's cheese!), drizzled over grilled or roasted vegetables (even grilled salmon!) and other simple, seasonal fresh vegetable salads such as asparagus with feta, green beans with almonds and of course your fresh garden lettuces.   

Our Citrus Sunshine Vinaigrette keeps well for 1 week refrigerated (bring to room temperature before using) but we doubt it will last that long!  


Zest & Juice of 1 lemon 
3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
¼ tsp. turmeric powder
¼ tsp. Ground black pepper 
1/2 tsp. sea salt 
1 tsp. Dijon 
1 tsp. Honey or maple syrup
½ cup neutral or olive oil 

  1. Place all ingredients except oil in a blender and blend on high until smooth, about 20 seconds.
  2. Scrape the jar of the blender, reduce speed, and then slowly drizzle in the oil.
