1- Bright and beautiful colors
Summer brings out this side of me. June-September we pack our menu with salads and load them up with anything and everything. One of our favorite activities as a family is to browse the produce section of our local grocery store and pick something new to try. While searching the fresh herbs I stumbled onto a little gem that I had NO idea existed. Right there, smack dab in between thyme and mint sprigs, were a beautiful display of edible flowers. (I know, I know… What food blogger does not know about edible flowers?!) I picked up a bundle and thought I’d educate myself on how/what to serve them with.
Come to find out, each variety as a different taste or flavor. The bundle we grabbed pairs well with citrus. Coincidentally, I had just picked up a large bundle of tangerines (anyone interested in a jelly recipe??) and decided… Why not? I reached for my favorite vinaigrette ingredients and quickly got to work.
Choosing quality ingredients is always important when you have a simple recipe like this one. Pompeian’s Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is perfect base for dressings, salads and vinaigrettes, or as a table condiment for dipping bread or crudité. The grape juice used in Pompeian’s Organic Balsamic Vinegar is slowly cooked and then placed in barrels for refining and aging which adds a complex flavor. It is also caramel color free and naturally gluten free.
Quick side note, we have made this about 6 or 7 times now. It is fantastic on pretty much every type of salad and gives it a fun, fresh, citrus taste. If you can’t find tangerines, a quick substitute would be oranges. They are easily interchangeable and both give a similar flavor.
- 1/2 cup Pompeian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 Tbsp tangerine zest
- 1/4 cup fresh tangerine juice
- 2 Tbsp Pompeian organic balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
Combine all ingredients in a medium sized mason jar.
Secure the lid and shake until combined. Serve on your favorite salad.
