Spicy orange vinaigrette salad dressing recipe

Receta en español

This orange dressing is perfect for salads that have fruit (mango, orange, apple, avocado) and also for salads with shrimp or chicken. I used a red Fresno chili pepper, but you can use any hot pepper that you like. I love using cilantro in salad dressings, but if you prefer something different you can use parsley, basil, etc.

Spicy orange vinaigrette

My favorite way to make a vinaigrette is to place all the ingredients in a jar (that has a lid that closes tightly), close the jar, and shake the jar until all the ingredients are mixed. You can make this spicy orange vinaigrette ahead of time and keep it refrigerated until ready to use, just give it another shake right before adding it to your salad.
