    Just made a great dressing - okay, I copped it from Cheryl Thomas on FoodTV!:blush:


    Orange Vanilla Vinaigrette

    1 cup orange juice
    1 vanilla bean, split
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/4 cup Japanese rice wine vinegar
    1/2 cup EVO
    salt/pepper

    Put OJ in a saucepan. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean, and add seeds and pod to OJ. bring to a simmer and reduce by 2/3; remove and let cool, then strain. In a bowl, mix OJ, vinegar, and garlic; add oil slowly and whisk; salt and pepper to taste.

    Served on a salad of -

    Arugula, sliced avocado, sliced mango, sliced red onion.

    Soooo good!

    Sounds similar to a dressing I make only I start with OJ concentrate....other than that it looks the same! Love it with bibb or baby greens, hearts of palm, roasted pecans and orange slices...good with tarragon too.

    Is there a substitute for the vanilla bean? Like maybe pure vanilla extract? How much? My supermarket doesn't stock "exotic" products like vanilla beans. :rolleyes:

    You could use extract but it won't be the same. the beans really get the flavor infused throughout the oj.

    What market do you shop? I can't believe you can't find vanilla beans in Jersey!!!! Try King's in Verona or Hillsdale. or shop the net - Dean and Deluca mail orders; also are you familiar with Penzey's - my favorite spice source? www.penzeys.com
