Citrus-Basil Dressing


This dressing pairs beautifully with our Brown Rice Salad with Edamame.

This recipe makes approx. 2 cups of dressing—more than you need for the salad. Store the leftovers in a lidded container in the fridge for up to five days. Feel free to use the remainder with another salad or as a meat marinade for chicken or steak.


You’ll Need

  • ¾ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 ½ Tbsp honey
  • ½ cup canola oil

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend for 1 minute. Alternatively, place in a wide-mouth Mason jar and puree with an immersion blender.
