Red Tipped Leaf Lettuce Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Big D Texas

The recipe for this came from a close friend of ours and we make it a LOT simply because we cannot find one that we like more. I posted it here exactly as the original recipe was written.I have asked her for the recipe at LEAST a dozen times, and now that it is out on the site I will be able to find it! The type of "leaf" does not matter. I usually make it with fresh spinach.......using a 16 oz bag. You can also sub chopped macademia nuts, for the sesame seeds. Some times I throw in some crumbled Feta cheese too! The oranges really make it look pretty!

Loved it over spinach. Took your advice and used only the celery salt. Will use this on green salads again - and maybe use valencia or naval oranges. Thanks Big D Texas!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the dressing, mix salad oil, vinegar, salt, sugar and mustard in a small bowl and whisk together with a fork.
  2. Pour dressing, seeds and fruit over the lettuce and/or spinach just before serving and toss it all to combine. Do not put the dressing on the salad until just before you serve it because it will wilt!
  3. IMPORTANT NOTE: ALTHOUGH the original recipe here calls for both celery salt AND regular salt, it is too much. Unless you really like salt, just use the celery salt amount!
