A bottle of salad dressing can cost around $4.00. Try making this fresh at home, it will cost a lot less.
Bonefish Grill® Citrus Herb Vinaigrette
2/3 Cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 Cup light brown sugar
3 Tablespoons water
2 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
4 Teaspoons minced garlic
1 Tablespoon Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
2 Teaspoons orange juice
2 Teaspoons lemon juice
2 Teaspoons minced fresh parsley
1/2 Teaspoon dried basil
1/4 Teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 Teaspoon grated orange peel
1/4 Teaspoon grated lemon peel
1/4 Teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 Teaspoon salt
1/8 Teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients except for the oil in a glass or stainless steel bowl. Whisk well. Allow mixture to rest for 15 minutes. Slowly whisk in oil, pouring it in a steady stream and whisking continuously to make an emulsion.

Cover and chill for 1 hour before serving.
Makes 1-1/4 cups.
