Here's a simple vinaigrette recipe that offers a subtle nutty flavor for a lovely departure from the usual.

Why Try? This recipe is a favorite with the French and Italians. The light walnutty flavor is subtle, but wonderful. Once you try it, you'll want to have it again and again.

Foodie Byte: When you use specialty oils such as Walnut Oil, be sure to store out of the light. It's best if they're kept in a tin or dark bottle. Unlike olive oil, walnut oil should be refrigerated after it's been opened,

Preparation

  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Toss over greens with roasted walnuts and orange slices.
