Citrus Mint Vinaigrette

Posted by Unknown Tuesday, March 24, 2009
This recipe I think was inspired by an Emeril Lagasee cooking show my dad and I watched a few years back. I remember him mixing citrus juice, loads of fresh herbs then mixing it in collard greens and blue cheese. I always thought the dressing looked good so here was my take on what I remembered.

1 tablespoon green onion (chopped)
1/2 tsp orange zest
1/4 tsp lime zest
1 1/2 tbsp Orange juice
1/2 tbsp volcanic Italian lemon juice
1/4 tsp Lime Juice
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp Honey Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove (minced)
2 pinches of kosher salt
pinch of lemon pepper
1 tbsp fresh mint (chopped)
1 tbsp fresh basil (chopped)
1 tbsp fresh Italian parsley (chopped)
1 tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped)
1 tbsp fresh tarragon (chopped)
1/4 tsp fresh Rosemary (chopped)
1/2 tbsp dried oregano
1/2 cup extra virgin olive

In a medium bowl whisk together vinegar, orange juice, orange zest, lemon juice, lime juice, lime zest, green onion, , Honey Dijon, oregano garlic, 2 pinches of salt and a pinch of pepper. Gently drizzle and whisk the 1/2 cup of olive oil into mixture. Now add the mint, basil, parsley, tarragon and cilantro.
