Orange salad with red wine dressing

Exotic and colourful

Exotic and colourful

Winter is just the right time for citrus fruits and there’s nothing like adding them into your salads. I am not that fond of salads, it’s a little difficult for me to eat the regular, tomato, capsicum, cucumber salad. Salads should be a little different and may be a little exotic :P. This is the first time I tried to make this interesting salad, with a dash of red wine that was lying at home.

Ingredients for the salad:

Cucumber -1

Iceberg lettuce – 1 ½ cup

Red and yellow bell pepper – ½ of each

Baby corn – 4-5

Broccoli – 1 cup

Orange – 1 deseeded

 

Ingredients for the salad dressing:

Red wine -2tbsp

Garlic – ½ tbsp crused

Balsamic vinegar – 1 tbsp

Orange juice – 2tbsp

Olive oil – 1 ½ tsp

Thyme – ½ tsp

Oregano – ¼ tsp

Freshly ground pepper – 1/4 tsp

Honey – 1 tsp

Salt to taste.

Combine all the above ingredients for the dressing, if extra it can be refrigerated and can be used later.

Method:

Chop all the vegetables, add the orange. Mix  all of it along with the dressing in a large bowl. Refrigerate it for a little while and serve.
