I love salads, especially with fruit...I got this recipe from http://www.realmomkitchen.com/
A must to try!
Cran-Orange Almond Salad
1 large head red leaf lettuce, washed, dried, and broken into pieces (I like a lettuce combo so I used red leaf and butter – a red leaf and spring mixture would also be yummy)
1/2 medium onion, sliced sliced and separated into rings (I recommend slicing them very thin, a mandolin would be good if you have one. I wish mine were thinner. I then cut the rings in half)
2 – 3 oranges, peeled and sliced then cut into chunks (You can use 2 cans of mandarin oranges, drained – but the fresh orange is fabulous and the more the better for me)
1/2 jicama, peeled and cut into julienne strips
1/2 cup or so of dried cranberries
Serve tossed with orange dressing and sugared almonds. (recipes below)
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 cup canola oil (or vegetable oil)
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon Good Seasons dry Italian dressing mix
Combine ingredients in blender or shaker jar.
