  3. Prepare marinade by whisking the first seven ingredients together (the Blood Orange EVOO, chocolate balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper). Since the mustard is a good emulsifier, you don’t need to stream in the blood orange olive oil; you can mix all the ingredients at once.
