Baby Greens Salad with Oranges and Olives - 12/2/04

Baby Greens Salad with Oranges and Olives
Add the blood orange sections just before serving. Over mixing can cause their festive color to bleed into other ingredients.

12 cups mesclun or other mild salad greens
3 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs blood orange juice or regular orange juice
2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
8 thin slices red onion, separated into rings
2 cups blood orange and/or regular orange sections (8 blood oranges or 6 regular oranges)
2/3 cup mixed country olives or regular kalamata olives
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

  1. Place greens in a large salad bowl. For dressing, whisk together olive oil, orange juice, and vinegar in a small mixing bowl. Pour dressing over greens, gently tossing to mix.

  2. Divide mixture among eight salad plates. Top with onion rings, orange sections, and olives. Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Makes 8 servings.
