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.


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.
