Orange-Pumpkin Seed Vinaigrette


If pumpkin seed oil (which adds a delicious earthy flavor) is unavailable, you can substitute any other nut oil. Prep: 5 minutes, Cook: 6 minutes.


Makes 1/2 cup

Recipe from


1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
2 tablespoons minced shallot
1/4 cup fresh orange juice (about 1 medium-size orange)
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon pumpkin seed oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Garnish: toasted pumpkin seeds


Sauté ginger over medium heat in a skillet until soft. Add shallot, and sauté 1 minute. Add orange juice and next 7 ingredients; simmer 2 to 3 minutes (mixture will reduce a little); remove from heat. Toss with braised chard, and garnish, if desired.
