Winter Citrus Salad

Any flavored (or unflavored) olive oil can be substituted for the blood orange olive oil. The easy vinaigrette is completely interchangeable with vinegars and oils. Use your favorites to invent your own special salad dressing. This recipe makes a little over ½ cup. Double or triple the recipe to feed a crowd.

For the vinaigrette:

¼ cup white balsamic vinegar

1/3 cup blood orange flavored olive oil

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

Salt and pepper, to taste

For the salad:

Thinly sliced red onion

Red grapefruit premiums

Mandarin orange pieces
