  • 2 tablespoons orange juice plus zest of ½ orange replace it with lemon juice and zest for making a lemon Dijon vinaigrette if you're on a strict keto diet
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon real maple syrup or honey, or more to taste (NOTE: If you're on a keto/low-carb diet, use sugar-free maple syrup or honey).
  • A pinch of table salt
  • A dash of freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil


  • Zest ½ orange using a zester. Place it into a mason jar and add the orange juice, lemon juice, mustard, maple syrup, salt, and pepper.
  • Lastly, add the olive oil, close the jar tightly, and shake well until creamy and emulsified. TIP: Dress your salads with just enough of the maple dijon vinaigrette to coat the salad; otherwise, it will become soggy!
