Ingredients

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon ranch salad dressing (not seasoning)
  • 2 teaspoon honey
  • teaspoon sea salt
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried mint leaves

Instructions

Notes

  • Add fresh minced mint instead of dried, or replace the mint with your favorite herbs.
  • Play with the orange juice to lemon juice ratio, and citrus to olive oil ratios.
  • Substitute different oils, and flavored vinegar.
  • Replace the garlic powder with freshly pressed garlic, and add fresh ginger, shallots, chives, or red onion.
  • Replace the ranch dressing with other options like blue cheese, buttermilk, or yogurt.
  • Add other mix-ins like mustard, poppy seeds, or Tahini Paste.
  • Replace the honey with other sweeteners, including low carb options such as Truvia.
