READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Realtor by day

I love salads! I love Boston lettuce, too. Give this one a try. It's refreshing and different. If you can, make the dressing several hours ahead or the day before so the flavors can blend.

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!
