Spicy Citrus Dressing

Need an easy, delicious dressing or marinade? I gotchu!

5 ingredients (plus salt and pepper…so 7 if you want to get super detailed about it). Mix in a jar, store in fridge. You can use whatever hot sauce you want, but my heart belongs to Valentina. It is less than a dollar at Kroger, and is just the best on everything. You haven’t lived until you use this on your avocado toast…but I digress.

I like to use smashed garlic cloves, instead of minced, in this so that it is easy to avoid when eating as a salad dressing, or burning the small bits when used as a marinade. Make it at least 30 minutes before you plan on using it, and the garlic can infuse without being too overpowering.

Spicy Citrus Dressing


  • Juice of 1/2 medium-large orange
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 cloves of garlic, smashed
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Hot sauce to taste
  • Salt+Pepper to taste


  1. Mix everything together. If you have time, let it sit for 30 minutes before using so the garlic can infuse the dressing. If not, NBD. It will still be delicious!
