Make this delicious Citrus and Berry Salad and toss it with our favorite Orange Vinaigrette Salad Dressing. This Orange Vinaigrette is the light and fresh for the perfect Salad Recipe. It is sure to be a hit with your friends and family.
Vinaigrette is made by mixing an oil with something acidic such as vinegar or lemon juice…in this case we are using orange juice. The mixture can be enhanced with salt, herbs and/or spices. It is used most commonly as a salad dressing, but can also be used as a marinade.
For the base of the salad greens you can add your favorite greens. We love to use a mixture of romaine lettuce, baby spinach and some iceberg lettuce. But really any mixture of greens will work for this salad.
Then we love to add some citrus in the form of delicious fresh orange segments. You can just cut up an orange and add bite size pieces. Then add your favorite berries. We love to add blueberries, black berries, raspberries and strawberries. Whatever you have on hand will work and the color makes this salad as pretty as it tastes!
Then for a good crunch texture we love to add honey roasted peanuts…but any nut will work! We have tried it with toasted sliced almonds which is also amazing!
