Simple Holiday Green Salad with Orange VinagretteI started making this salad a few years ago when I needed a last-minute salad to take to a Christmas party. I was in charge of making salad for about 100 people. Not a small feat! I was able to pull together a healthy, delicious, simple holiday green salad with ingredients I already had on hand (minus the greens!). The salad was a huge hit at the party and I've been making it every year since then.
The salad's popularity comes from how simple and delicious it is. The vinaigrette is made with fresh orange juice and white wine vinegar with a spicy ginger kick. I've made it with both ground and fresh ginger, depending what I had on hand, and both ways are fantastic. The fresh ginger gives it a burst of freshness, but it's the pinch of cloves and cinnamon that gives it a little something extra that people love, but can't quite put their finger on. I like to add candied walnuts or pecans for extra crunch and sweetness.Read More »from Try This Sweet and Savory Salad with Orange Vinaigrette for Dinner Tonight!
