It is seriously hot and muggy. No one feels much like cooking or eating so salads are a big deal right now. This one is just lovely. Light, refreshing and very tasty! I'll be using this combination many times I am sure. The dressing is very similar to one I have been making for ages using either lemon, apple or orange juice. For those who want more of an orange flavour may I suggest using frozen concentrate instead of juice? That's what I generally do. Adding the zest will also increase the orangey flavour. This is a lovely dressing in any event. Thanks for posting!

Fantastic salad that I will be making often! So simple to make and the dressing has a wonderful orange flavor that blends well with the shallots. I made the dressing and refrigerated for about an hour and garnished with the chives. Made and reviewed for the Diabetic Forums Greens For Spring recipe tag game.

This is wonderful salad! I didn't have the little tomatoes, but I did get some beautiful Beefsteak tomatoes at Sam's Club, so I used them. I had a little red cabbage, so I shredded that, it made the salad really beautiful. Re: the comment by another member puzzled me. To make it a little more "orange-y" would have been simple. Just add a little more to the mix... Oh well..Thanks for another winner hon!

Very refreshing. I wished that the orange had come through a bit more though. I did use fresh squeezed juice. Also, I had to use up a couple of vine ripened tomatoes, so used them instead. I used the optional snipped chives as my garnish. Made for Every Day Holiday Tag. :)
