Orange Sesame Vinaigrette

Here's everything you need to put this together.

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.
The finished product.
