Mixed Citrus Green Salad

Toss mixed salad greens with flavorful fruit, walnut halves, and a homemade orange-poppy seed dressing for a fresh and delicious side salad that pairs well with most main dishes. 

Cooking Light MARCH 2010

  • Yield: 7 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup red seedless grapes, halved
  • 2 (5-ounce) bags mixed salad greens
  • 1 (11-ounce) can mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 (8-ounce) container pineapple chunks, drained

Preparation

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Arrange 2 cups salad on each of 7 plates; drizzle with 1 tablespoon Orange-Poppy Seed Dressing (reserve remaining dressing for another use). Top each serving with 3 walnut halves.

Note:

"I love to experiment, so I'm always creating recipes. The dressing in this salad is one I've been making a long time for fruit salad, but it also works well on leafy greens. Bagged salad mixes are a great time-saver, and you can throw a meal together in no time by adding a protein such as grilled chicken or shrimp." —Recipe Author and Sides & Salads Finalist, Debra Keil, Owasso, Okla.
