Ingredients Needed

  1. Lime Juice (1.0 oz)
  2. Orange Juice (0.5 tbsp)
  3. Dijon Mustard (1.0 tsp)
  4. Ground Cumin (0.5 tsp)
  5. Iodized Salt (0.25 tsp)
  6. Black Pepper (1.0 dash)
  7. Olive Oil (1.0 tbsp)

Instructions

Vinaigrette made not just for salads but also as a dip for fish, chips or chicken tenders.

  • Place the Dijon mustard in a bowl and whisk in the olive oil, then the lemon juice and the lime and orange juice. Add the cumin. Season with salt and pepper to taste. The vinaigrette will last for 10 days in the fridge
  • Get the orange and lime and roll them on the tabletop while adding mild pressure. This will allow the juice capsules to break open and making it easier to extract juice after slicing the citrus open.
  • Wash and dry the lime and orange. Cut into halves with a sharp knife. Squeeze lime in a bowl until all the juice is extracted, don’t forget to take out the seeds. Do the same for the orange using a separate bowl.
  • Measure the amount you need for the vinaigrette.
  • In a blender, add mustard, lime juice, orange juice, and continue to blend until combined.
  • Place the vinaigrette in a glass jar covered with a tight lid. Using glass jars is a more convenient way of storing liquids as compared to plastic containers, they are non-porous, and so they will not absorb the vinaigrette.
  • Put your dressing in the refrigerator. Home-produced vinaigrette should always be stored in a cool, dry place. Throw away the vinaigrette when the color has changed
  • After juicing the lime and orange, don’t throw them away just yet. You can use their zest for garnish to make your meals colorful and have a bright addition of flavor.

    Confused about Dijon mustard? Well it’s different than your regular mustard. Dijon has a light color and a strong flavor. There is another kind which is called the Bordeaux with a darker, milder and sourer taste, sweet and has tarragon. So don’t make the mistake of substituting Dijon mustard with regular mustard to achieve the full taste of the dish.

    Cumin’s color is a pale to a medium brown, and works well with asparagus, chicken, lamb, fish, pork, and potatoes. It also has an additional flavor when roasted. You can place it in a pan along with a little splash of olive oil. Cumin also is a famous ingredient in tacos. It is usually mixed with the meat before cooking. Always store it in an airtight container and away from sunlight and heat. Whole cumin seeds have a longer shelf life as compared to the ground spice. Cumin is also regarded as the second most popular spice in the world, it ranks next to black peppercorns.
