Citrus Vinaigrette with Thyme

Prep: 5 minsTotal: 5 mins
Servings: 1 1/4 cup 1x


  • 1 orange, juiced (~1/3 cup)
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 1 1/2 tsp. fresh thyme (or 1/2 tsp. dried thyme)
  • 1 tsp. dijon mustard (whole30 compliant) or yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp. honey or maple syrup (OMIT for Whole30)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced (or 1 Tbsp. finely minced shallots)
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 2/3 cup avocado oil or olive oil


  1. In a small food processor or blender, add all of the ingredients and blend until well combined. May also whisk ingredients together.
  2. **Because no vinegar is used in this recipe, using a blender or food processor really helps to emulsify the ingredients so that they stay blended. You may need to run the dressing under warm water if oil solidifies and then give it a good shake to mix.
