Fresh Citrus

Cuisinart original

Fresh orange and lemon juices replace the vinegar in this refreshing dressing. Try it on greens, or use it to create a salad with cooked rice (try a mixture of brown and wild rices), diced vegetables and chopped toasted nuts.


Makes 7/8 cup


1 teaspoon orange zest, finely chopped 1 teaspoon fresh thyme 6 tablespoons fresh orange juice 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard pinch kosher salt 6 tablespoons "light" olive oil
