Moroccan Orange-Walnut Salad (Zwt II)

"Another recipe I stumbled across & fell in love with on a search for something else. My recipe source is "The New Enchanted Broccoli Forest" by Mollie Katzen. Recipes w/10 min prep times always get my attention (esp ones w/flavor combos like this one!) & the serving method sounded like so much fun to do w/your family or at a dinner party w/friends. :-)"

    The presentation is what makes this salad shine! I loved how the toppings come together to provide such yummy flavor - the honey-cinnamon oranges are awesome. I thew in a little red pepper since I had some to use up. Great salad! Made for ZWT6.

    This was definately something different for me. I enjoyed the crisp freshness of this salad. I think it paires well with lighter fare such as tuna or salmon and some rice pilaf. My only mistake in making this recipe is that I had it with a pasta dish that did not balance well with the salad. I would definately call this salad "very good" if I had ordered it in a cafe. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Perfectly delicious! The radishes really compliment the orange -but dh picked his out. LOL! And love the cinnamon. I like Molly Katzen's recipes. Thanks twissis for posting. Made for Unrulies Under the Influence during ZWT6.

    Excellent! Must admit I was a little apprehensive that oil was not going to be enough, but it was PERFECT! Thanks for sharing.


I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)
