Although the vinaigrettes originated in the Mediterranean, there’s no doubt that the Mexican cuisine has adopted this delicious dressing and has adapted it with numerous ingredients that are very present in the Mexican cuisine.
In this recipe is a combination of citrus, the ones that give to the vinaigrette its main flavor. Don’t worry the vinaigrette’s flavor is not extremely acidic because also some ingredients that have certain sweetness are used, that help to counteract the acidity of the citrus – and as good vinaigrette the flavor of the oils can always be perceived.
The citrus vinaigrette also has a very original aroma and it will serve you to dress simple salads like the mixed salad. It can also be used to give a different touch to the chicken salpicon or even to season some vegetables.
