- 60 ml freshly squeezed orange juice
- 30 ml red wine vinegar
- 30 ml Dijon mustard
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 15 ml honey
- 2.5 ml dried oregano
- 2.5 ml dried basil
- 2.5 ml salt
- 1.25 ml black pepper
- 120 ml extra-virgin olive oil
- In a small bowl, whisk together the freshly squeezed orange juice, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, honey, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and black pepper until well combined.
- Slowly drizzle in the extra-virgin olive oil while whisking continuously. This will help emulsify the dressing and create a smooth consistency.
- Continue whisking until the dressing is well blended and slightly thickened.
- Taste the dressing and adjust the seasonings according to your preference. You can add more salt, pepper, honey, or any other desired herbs to enhance the flavour.
- Transfer the French dressing to a jar or bottle with a tight-fitting lid.
- Shake the dressing well before using, as the oil and other ingredients may separate naturally.
