Citrus Strawberry Salad

Citrus Strawberry Salad

Simple ingredients make the most flavorful dishes.


1 small bag Spring Mix greens
1/3 cup sliced almonds
2 strawberries
1 navel orange

Citrus Balsamic Vinaigrette

2 tbs Aged Balsamic vinegar
½ tsp sugar
½ tsp fresh orange zest
1/3 cup olive oil

Toast the sliced almonds in a small pan over low heat for about 20 minutes stirring constantly to avoid burning.

In a medium bowl mix the vinegar, sugar, and orange zest. Add the olive oil slowly while whisking to emulsify the vinaigrette. Set aside.

Cut strawberries in quarts; remove the skin of the orange and cut the wedges inside. Put them aside.

Add the mixed greens to the vinaigrette and toss. Top with strawberries, oranges, and almonds. Serve immediately.
