Orange-Pumpkin Seed Vinaigrette

  • 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

How to Make It

  1. 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.
