Belgian Witbier Vinaigrette
here, but with several twists of our own. Overall, it worked out very nicely, and would be great over your basic spring mix (as we chose), or perhaps over some slightly bitter greens.
Belgian Witbier Vinaigrette (serves 6-8)
-4 oz. freshly-squeezed orange juice
-4 TBSP high-quality white balsamic vinegar
-1 TBSP dijon mustard (we used Emeril's 'kicked-up' horseradish variety)
-1 heaping TBSP honey
-2 oz. Belgian witbier (we used Boulevard's Zon, but it's seasonal; New Belgium's Mothership Wit
or the imported Hoegaarden would work nicely as well, and they're readily available).
-Salt and pepper, to taste.
For a simple, refreshing salad, mix all ingredients together, shake well, and pour over greens topped with slivered almonds, or perhaps orange slices or some mellow goat cheese.
