Extract the juice from the lemons. Strain the juice.

Combine all juices and balsamic into a sauce pot and reduce till syrupy or it coats the back of the spoon.

REVIEW: 1 star recipe rating
not even close to Chili's. And I get it a lot because the quesadilla explosion salad that it comes with is my favorite. I think it might have too much of the balsamic vinegar but I'm not sure. It's just way tarter than the chili's and it is darker in color. Either something is missing or it's just too much of something. I am going to keep looking or just experiment on my own. Thanks.

This dressing is okay, but if you're looking for the same flavor as the Chili's citrus balsamic dressing you will be disappointed. It's not really even very similar, except for it contains balsamic vinegar and citrus juice. The flavor is entirely different, in my opinion. My rating is based in the fact that this is called a "copycat recipe", but it really missed the mark and does not taste at all like the Chili's dressing.

You fail to mention how it's different from Chili's. Which makes me wonder if you even tried the recipe? Your review isn't really helpful as is.

I couldn't get tangerines so I tried this with oranges and it was good. I want to try again with tangerines as I think it will be a little sweeter than using the oranges.
