Orange salad with red wine dressing
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:
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.
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.
