Author Notes: I just wanted something that feels and tastes healthy and light after heavy December foods. I've just moved to US and this is my first salad that I made here, that means I already found my favorite places for great, fresh ingredients and I'm on my everyday routine, and that makes me happy. Really looking forward to get to know all kinds of new foods and dishes, but this colorful salad I'll remember for a while.
The Orange & honey dressing I found in one of Jamie Oliver's cookbooks, I just added some bashed coriander seeds.
