Asian, Hawaiian
 Citrus Vinaigrette Default

Comments: 0


The Sweet – Sour flavor of Asian sauces is captured in this dressing: the sour from the red wine vinegar, and the sweet from the orange juice and sugar. I added garlic to bring a little piquant zing to the mix.

Yield:  1½ cups


  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup canola oil


Combine all ingredients, except oil. Whisk until sugar is completely dissolved and mixture is thoroughly blended. Gradually add oil while continuing to whisk.

Chill for half a day before using.
