Blood Orange & Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette
The infused olive oils that are available today are amazing. These oils are sold in many “olive oil specialty stores” in almost every city. They are great in salad dressings and used as a finishing oil. Do not try to cook with them, the oil will become very bitter. If you want to flavor, say green beans, first cook the beans and then drizzle the sweet oil on top and stir and then serve. Delicious. I hope you enjoy this blood orange & fig balsamic vinaigrette.
For this salad dressing, this infused blood orange is such a perfect oil to use to bring out such a great pungent orange flavor. The blood orange is one of my favorites. I am also addicted to the Kirkland brand balsamic vinegar. It is aged in wooden barrels and beautifully balanced. The bottles are even numbered! Just like a good wine. It truly is the best value out there. It is a staple in my pantry.
Yield: 1/2 cup
Serving Ideas: Tastes great over the roasted beet salad with grated goat cheese. This tasty dressing also goes well over roasted Brussel sprouts.
