      The recipe is missing the ingredients for the vinaigrette. According to the Empire website they are:
      Citrus Vinaigrette
      1 orange (use the peel and the juice)
      2 tablespoons lime juice
      1 or 2 cloves minced fresh garlic (depending on your taste)
      1 tablespoon fresh cilantro
      Pinch of black pepper
      2 teaspoons honey
      1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

      This salad was super easy to make and really delicious. The citrus flavours are perfect for a hot, summer day.
