Orange Salad with Serrano Dressing

For this bright and refreshing citrus salad, chef Eddie Hernandez of Taqueria del Sol uses an 80/20 blend of vegetable oil to olive oil. "If you’re going to use 100 percent olive oil when you do a salad," he advises, "don’t add anything else. Pure olive oil is something you want to showcase; it doesn't make for a good mixed dressing."
