How to make Orange Walnut Salad?

Here’s what you’ll need to make this vibrant salad:

Ingredients:

  • 2 navel oranges, peeled and segmented
  • 1 cup mixed greens (arugula, spinach, romaine)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (optional)
  • 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Peel the oranges and remove any white membrane. Use a sharp knife to cut between the membranes and the flesh to release the orange segments. Discard the membranes.
  2. Place the walnuts in a dry skillet over medium heat and toast for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and fragrant.
  3. Whisk together the olive oil, orange juice, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.
  4. Combine the mixed greens, orange segments, red onion, and toasted walnuts. Toss with the dressing and top with crumbled feta cheese (if using).

You can add Valencia oranges, avocado, grapes, or cucumbers.
