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

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

  3. 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!

  5. Thank you just been diagnosed and yours look yummy!

  6. I have a question…do you actually put half a navel orange into the salad dressing to whish OR the navel orange juices? Thanks….

  7. I Love this recipe.
    Thanks,

  8. 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!

  9. This vinaigrette is amazing! My three sons (ages 3, 5 and 7) absolutely love it along with my husband and I. This is my new go-to salad and dressing. Thanks for a great recipe!! I do not do WW, but love your approach- lighter meals with real ingredients!

  10. You cut the avocado in half long ways, remove the pit and then take a knife and cut slices into them long ways. Then take a spoon and scoop out all the slices. It's hard to explain without photos. I will photograph next time I slice one.

  11. Gina- how do you cut an avacado like that?? where is the hole for the pit? it looks like you cut straight through the avacado and it had no pit. i am soooo confused 😉 lol

  14. yummy!

  15. Made this Monday for my in-laws as an experiment and all of us loved it. We needed a lighter meal after Easter dinner the night before and this totally fit the bill. I added a sliced hard boiled egg to each salad just to make it a touch more filling – and to use up my daughter's Easter eggs. Also although the egg added 2 points, it made it much more filling. No body needed anything else to eat, but everyone cleaned their bowls. Thanks Gina!

  16. Thanks for the blog award!

    @Danica- I agree with you!! Worth every point.

    @Lady L- The info is from the USDA National Nutrient Database
