Orange Balsamic Salad Dressing

Makes 4 (Meal-Size) Servings

½ cup Extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup Balsamic vinegar
¼ cup Frozen orange juice concentrate*
2 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp Honey
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Onion powder
½ tsp Garlic powder

Combine all ingredients in a small mason jar. Cover with a tight lid and shake well. Drizzle over salad greens and enjoy! Store any extra in the refrigerator and use within 4 days.

* If you want a slightly less tart dressing, use 2 teaspoons orange juice concentrate for 1 serving, or 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons orange juice concentrate for 4 servings. With this ratio, the flavors all blend and they are balanced so no one flavor stands out.
