What this dressing lacks in calories and fat it makes up for in big, bold orange flavor and herbal oregano notes.

It's really refreshing and really liked it once I made the following adjustments. I will make this again - I used a freshly picked orange. Add maple syrup to taste (counteracts the cider vinegar) Add 1/4 cup more oil. I used olive oil.

Light and flavorful citrus accent on the EatingWell green salads. Fresh orange juice, zest and oregano from the garden blended well together. I reduced the vinegar by half to our taste.

I didn't like the flavor of the dressing at all. I was very dissapointed.

This dressing was good until I added the oregano. The oregano was overpowering and it doesn't seem to go well with the orange, at least in this application. I am going to try this again without oregano. Maybe some other herb would be better. FYI, I am not a picky eater and usually like oregano.
