February 2006. Boston Massachusetts. Legal Seafood. I had the best salad of my life. On the take out menu, which I have saved to this day, it is called the tortilla, apple, and goat cheese salad, with scallops and chopped avacado in an chipotle orange dressing . I have never forgotten the divinity that was that salad.

My newly-invented imitation of that dressing is not quite right, but it's still pretty darn good. Today I enjoyed it over mixed greens, tomato, red onion, green onion, oranges, goat cheese, and egg. Mmmmmmm!
Zest of one orange
Juice of one orange
One clove of garlic, minced
One jalepeno pepper, diced
1/2 Cup Oil
1/2 Cup Vinegar
1/4 Cup Lime Juice

Combine all ingredients in a bottle and shake to combine. Can be stored in the refridgerator - I don't know for how long, because it doesn't stick around long enough to go bad.
