Simple Holiday Green Salad with Orange Vinaigrette

Kelly Mike - Tuesday, September 02, 2014


For salad
  • 5 ounce container organic mixed baby greens
  • 2-3 mandarin oranges, peeled and segmented (or one large can mandarin oranges)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup candied walnuts
For dressing
  • 1/2 cup oil 
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • big pinch ground cloves and cinnamon


For salad

Arrange mixed greens in a large salad bowl. Top with remaining ingredients. Drizzle with some of the vinaigrette and toss to coat. Serve immediately. Or serve vinaigrette on the side.

For vinaigrette

In a medium bowl, whisk together orange juice, vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper, and spices. While whisking, add the oil in a slow stream. Whisk very well until the vinaigrette is combined. Alternatively, place everything except for the oil into a pint jar and shake well. Add the oil and shake again until combined. Makes about 1 cup of vinaigrette.
