    Tia Mouse's Note:

    This is a versatile salad, so mix it up (no pun intended) however YOU like it! You can easily add sliced protein (steak or fish, etc.) and some fresh bread to make a meal out of this one. The vinaigrette was born out of a desire to use up some orange marmalade and to dress a lunch salad. (Read: light, fresh, bright) The photo has a jalepeno because I was so close to chopping some up. I think it will be great... next time! NOTE: We like our vinaigrette's more acid than oil, so if you prefer oily you'll need to probably DOUBLE the oil, and if you like sweet, add 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of sugar, too! THE SYSTEM WON'T LET ME ADD THE 1 CUP OF RADDICHIO, but you'll want to add it!

    Units: US | Metric

    Salad

    Vinaigrette (mkes about 1/2 cup)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix greens and herbs together.
    2. 2
      Add celery, onion, bell pepper, tomatoes and cucumber (and anything else you decided to add!).
    3. 3
      Prepare vinaigrette by mixing all ingredients except oil. Add oil gradually, whisking continuously until fully emulsified. (Or, if you prefer, add all ingredients to a sealed container and shake thoroughly.).
    4. 4
      If you like your lettuce "marinated", toss the vinaigrette into the salad and refrigerate until ready to serve.
    5. 5
      BEFORE SERVING: Add feta, walnuts (and oranges, if you're using them) and protein, if any, just before serving (don't toss).
    6. 6
      I hope you enjoy the salad as much as we do. It's a fresh alternative to the everyday!

      We made this Thanksgiving and for many dinners since. It is a huge hit. My aunt liked it so much at Thanksgiving that she asked me to make it for Christmas dinner as well.
