What a beautiful way to use winter citrus! Thyme is one of my favorite herbs and it must pair so well with the oranges in this dressing. This would be a fantastic way to brighten up chicken breasts for an easy weeknight dinner!
Yes, so good drizzled over some grilled chicken!
I absolutely adore homemade salad dressings! I haven’t tried many with a fruit base though, and this sounds delicious! I want to pour it over everything!
It's so good. Gives a great zip to any salad 🙂
I love homemade vinaigrette! And I think the citrus in this would be amazing on salad! I just picked up some lettuce at our winter farmer's market and will have to try this dressing on it!
Yum!! Enjoy 🙂
