Citrus Mint Dressing

LivFarms’ Citrus Mint Dressing is a refreshing and light dressing that bursts with the sunny flavors of orange and lemon juice that create a perfect harmony of sweet and tangy notes. The olive oil adds a smooth, velvety texture and a subtle fruitiness that complements the zesty citrus. The fresh mint leaves introduce a cool, invigorating freshness that elevates the dressing's profile, making it vibrant and aromatic. A hint of honey softens the acidity and brings a gentle sweetness that ties all the flavors together. This dressing's bright and airy qualities pair wonderfully with the delicate leaves of LivFarms’ Red Leaf lettuce. To build a salad that mirrors the dressing's light and refreshing nature, consider incorporating slices of avocado for creaminess, segments of grapefruit or orange for an additional citrusy punch, and toasted pumpkin seeds for a contrasting crunch.This dressing is ideal for a summer salad, offering a palate-cleansing and cooling effect that's perfect for warm weather dining.
