Citrus Appeal

If you’re juicing citrus fruit and don’t have immediate need for the zest, remove it with a vegetable peeler and set it out on a plate to dry.

Once it’s completely dry, store it in a jar so you’ll always have zest on hand even when you’re out of fresh citrus fruit.

Recipe of the Day:  Citrus Vinaigrette

This vinaigrette tastes excellent.

Thanks to a dollop of Greek yogurt, it has a creamy texture.

It’s a delicious dressing for salads or drizzled on grilled fish or chicken.

Try substituting other combinations of citrus fruits, like lemons, grapefruit, or blood oranges, to create unique flavors.

Makes 1 cup

1/2 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt

1 teaspoon grated lime zest

1/4 cup lime juice

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves

1 tablespoon agave nectar or honey

1 tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar

1 teaspoon chopped garlic

1/4 cup light olive oil

Salt and ground black pepper to taste

*Use as many organic ingredients as possible.

Combine the yogurt, lime zest and juice, cilantro, agave nectar or honey, vinegar, and garlic in a food processor and puree until smooth.

While the machine is running, slowly drizzle in the oil until mixed.

Season with salt and pepper.

The dressing will keep in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
