Orange Dijon Vinaigrette

I just whipped up this light (but flavorful!) vinaigrette for my Beet Salad with Black Mission Figs & Goat Cheese. After my husband finished his salad he gave his bowl a nice full lick. Yep. He does that sometimes....I, of course didn't mind - that means it was tasty! This dressing has a tangy and sweet component from the orange and agave but balances out nicely with the dijon mustard that is added. Try it drizzled on your next salad!

2 tablespoons of good quality olive oil
4 tablespoons of fresh squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
1 tablespoon of agave nectar
1 teaspoon of orange zest
Salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil, orange juice and orange zest. Add the dijon mustard and agave. Whisk till combined. Add salt and pepper to taste and whisk once more. Top on your favorite salad and enjoy!
