I like easy recipes that don't call for hard-to-find ingredients or lots of prep work. I also like reading old cookbooks and bringing some of the dishes up to date. My recipes don't require you to be a gourmet chef and many of them are simple enough for kids to tackle.

Orange Sesame Vinaigrette
Here's everything you need to put this together.
Photo by Kate Tompkins
1 ounce sesame oil
1 ounce balsamic vinegar
2 ounces white vinegar
1 single serving packet Tang Orange crystals
Combine all the ingredients in a jar or bottle and shake. A
squeeze bottle like the one in the photo works beautifully for this—found mine
at a dollar store. Yes, I know the ratio of oil to vinegar is upside down, but
there’s enough sugar to cut the sharpness. If you prefer it a bit more mellow,
add another ounce of cooking oil, but don’t use more sesame oil as the flavour
will be too strong.
Makes approximately four ounces
I came up with this one day when I discovered I had no
dressing in the fridge to go with the salad I had just made, and wanted
something a little fancier than a straight oil and vinegar mix.
