Colorful Salad with Orange Vinaigrette

June 12, 2014

Author Notes: So getting back to my salad, it’s really colorful and delicious! I love my veggies though I’d love it more with a few chicken chunks thrown in ;) This salad is super fresh and that lovely orange vinaigrette gives it such a punch!

I am not listing ingredients for this salad, as I used veggies that were available to me. Mix and match is fun! My side of town is filled with these really beautiful deep pink radishes! Oh they are gorgeous!

Serves: 2


  • 3 pieces Pink radish
  • 1/4 piece Beetroot
  • 1 Lettuce
  • 8-10 Mint leaves
  • 2 tablespoons Crushed nuts such as peanuts
  • 1 Orange
  • 1/4 cup Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Balsalmic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
