To make dressing, in measuring cup, combine all juices and balsamic vinegar. Add enough apple cider vinegar to make 1/2 cup. Pour into mixing bowl or blender, with mustard. Slowly incorporate oils while mixing. Add the zests, and season with salt and pepper.

I tried this recipe after many years of it sitting on the shelf (the recipe) and it was good.
