Revitalize your fresh and crunchy greens as you coat them up with this Citrus Vinaigrette Recipe! A flavorful dressing that’s made from fruits and vegetables. Plus, you can whip this up year-round as citrus fruits are always available in the market.

This Citrus Vinaigrette is tangy, which already has become a familiar taste as it’s commonly served in restaurants. However, we say that dressings are best made at home. It would taste yummier without those icky-preservatives, too much sugar, and salt. There’s really no tedious procedure or inaccessible ingredients to whip up a delightful dressing. Moreover, there are just countless flavors to create in your kitchen.

- ¼ cup grapefruit juice freshly squeezed

- Alternatively, you can combine all the ingredients in a mason jar with a tight-fitting lid. You may just have to shake the jar vigorously until the dressing is well-blended.
