Citrus Salad Dressing - cjs - 02-17-2010

I picked up the most wonderful citrus at a Farmers market this a.m. and I want to make a green/citrus salad. I see a lot of recipes in the books I brought with me, but does anyone have a favorite?? Maybe a little creamy, but citrusy? Thanks.

Sorry, Jean. Other than using lemon juice with herbs and vinegar and oil, my recipes are flavored mostly by herbs/spices and/or different vinegars. There are those I sent you from Linda aka Cake Doctor aka (I think?) Musicmaker, I don't have a thing for ya'. Good luck.

This is the only one that comes to mind but it went very well with this salad.

Oh, you guys are great!! I finally just threw some 'stuff' together. Thank you so much and I'm going to copy all of them, cause the fruit down here is wonderful!!!

Jean, I'm not sure now what you are looking for. If you're looking for a citrus vinaigrette like the ones we swapped before, let me know. I'll email them to you. As for fruit salads, I just love the fruits tossed and the flavors allowed to marry....maybe a drizzle of good olive oil if mixed with something other than just fruit. I also love nuts and cheese added when greens are part of the mix. But when it's just citrus, I love the purity of the flavors.

My favorite citrus dressing is Ina's. I made the lemon curd, then used it for her Greek yogurt Limoncello dressing. Our favorite over fruit in the summer. I am sure not what you have in mind, but it was the first thing that came to mine when I heard citrus dressing.

BTW, my favorite I forgot to eat meal and need to have something right now, is TJ's canned tuna in olive oil with a good splash of fresh lime juice and Penzey's granulated garlic. It gives me the protein jolt I need and takes 2 minutes. You do need fresh limes, I've used lemons and it is not as good.

Oh wow, Cubangirl, that tuna thing sounds good. I may try that soon on a bit of lettuce. Although there is no TJ's here, I'll have to go with some other brand of tuna.
