  1. Hi. I see the same question in the comments that I have. For the 1/2 navel orange is the orange slices or the juice of the orange?

    Thank you.

  2. This was just okay for me, but I loved the dressing!

  3. The vinaigrette added such a fresh taste! I used a “spicy” oregano in it, which kicked up the flavor profile. So, so good!

  4. I was unsure if I would like this, since I am usually a fan of ranch dressing, and when dieting I do balsamic and oil. However, oh my goodness, this is the freshest, most flavorful vinaigrette I have ever had. This is so refreshing and light. I love it! It is a perfect salad for hot weather. Thank you so much Gina!

  9. My boyfriend was craving a vinegar-less dressing ("I've been eating the same salad dressing for ten years!" he said) and I stumbled upon your recipe. It's just what I wanted! Thank you!
