Delicious! I used a whole orange in the blender, instead of squeezing it. Also, used balsamic vinegrette.

I'm a big sesame fan, and toasting the seeds really gives them a nice flavor. This is my favorite ETL dressing so far.

I tried this today and I had to throw my salad away, it was awful! I made it yesterday and for some reason today it was so bitter. These recipes on this site are really hit or miss.

I used white wine vinegar in place of the seasoned vinegar and it tasted great. We had it over a spinach salad with oranges, roasted beets, and almonds. Yum!

Delicious! I used blood orange vinegar instead because I didn't have the rice vinegar.

Delicious! I'm actually moaning with pleasure as I'm eating my salad right now! I used black sesame seeds and I added two tablespoons of flaxseeds, for the omega-3s. Had this dressing with my spinach/romaine/strawberry salad. To die for!

This dressing is fantastic! I love it, and makes me really look forward to my salad. I didn't toast the sesame seeds and it was still wonderful. I think it would be great on a fruit salad also.

Orange Sesame Dressing was served at the 2013 San Diego Health Getaway and was out of this world, but this can't be the right recipe. The one I had was really nicely spiced, but this one has no spices. I would really like to make the version that was served at the Health Getaway, but this one would definitely not be at all the same.

You have to blend it for quite awhile to get rid of the grittiness but once it has lost that, the flavor is great. It does thicken significantly overnight so definitely need the OJ to thin it out.

This dressing is amazing. Whoever came up with this is a culinary genius.

I love this recipe. I skip the sesame seeds, and sometimes add one of my pre-frozen pesto cubes.

I made this using clementines, yummy. I used it with a salad of mixed greens, cucumbers and radishes.

It sounds like a great recipe, but I've tried it twice now and both times it turned out very bitter! Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I followed the recipe and even ordered the Blood Orange Vinegar to see if that would help but it didn't. Maybe the oranges just weren't good enough.

I mix this with steamed kale and it is delicious.
