I mentioned on my Instagram last week that I would be posting 3 recipes this week leading up to a delicious dinner, and here I am with recipe #1.
I’m going to start with the dressing, because though it may be optional to the final product, it is delicious, refreshing, and versatile.
I’m talking about a bright, herbed Citrus-Garlic Vinaigrette.
I’ve already drizzled this on a number of things. Chicken, pork (more on that tomorrow), and even used it brighten up both a corn salad and a BLT salad I made for lunches last week.
I’m looking forward to finding more ways to use this (maybe drizzled over huevos rancheros?).
If you make this, snap a pic and tag it #messcountersfp. I’d love to see what you use it on.
1//2 bundle of cilantro, just the leaves
1/3-1/2 cup avocado oil, or olive oil (I like less oil, but I know some people prefer a higher oil to acid ratio)
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup of orange juice, fresh or store-bought
4 garlic gloves, grated
1 lime, zested and juiced
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Alternately, combine all ingredients in a small food processor/blender and pulse a few times until well combined.
I’ll see you guys tomorrow for that pork recipe I promised!
