Bonefish Grill Citrus Herb VinaigretteJanuary 2, 2009 at 1:04 am | Posted in Dressings, salads, Seasonings & Sauces, Yummy Veggies | 10 Comments
I am majorly slacking on this blog – so much is happening right now! Busy with the holidays, busy with my brother deploying to Iraq, etc., etc. I am going to start slowly but surely trying to get back into the swing of things here though.
My favorite salad dressings to use are the spray dressings – 1 calorie per squirt – can’t beat that! And they actually taste good so double score! However, sometimes I want something different and I’ll make my own dressing. I always forget to post them, but this one is definitely worth posting. One of our favorite chain restaurants in town is Bonefish Grill. Yeah, I’m allergic to seafood but I still like other things on their menu (good wine list doesn’t hurt either!). We love their salads that they serve and adore the dressing so I searched the net to see if I could find it and alas! I did! Thank you once again recipezaar! :)
If you want to make it exactly like the salad served at Bonefish then make this salad with fresh lettuce greens, artichoke hearts, feta cheese, pine nuts and tomato and olives if you choose. I kind of threw together what I had in the house today. Disclaimer – this dressing is NOT healthy but it’s oh so good for a special treat sometimes!!! :)
Copied directly from recipezaar.com:
- 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup sugar, I use Spenda
- 3 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 4 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons fresh parsley, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
Whisk everything in a bowl.
Microwave on high for one minute or until the mixture bubbles rapidly around the edge of the bowl.
Whisk for one minute until mixture forms an emulsion.
Cover and chill for one hour before serving.
This makes 1 and 1/4 cups following this exact recipe which is a lot because it doesn’t take much of this dressing (at least for me).
Pig Rating: The Pig likes this dressing a lot – he said it tasted just like Bonefish’s. YAY!
Mrs. Pig Rating: I love this dressing! Again, not healthy the way it’s made in this recipe so I only make it once every few months but it’s yummy when I do make it! :)
