BABY GREENS SALAD WITH ORANGES AND OLIVES

Add the blood orange sections just before serving. Over mixing can cause their festive color to bleed into other ingredients

Ingredients:

12 cups mesclun or other mild salad greens

3 Tbs olive oil

2 Tbs blood orange juice or regular orange juice

2 Tbs lemon juice

8  thin slices red onion, separated into rings

2 cups blood orange and/or regular orange sections (8 blood oranges or 6 regular oranges)

2/3 cup mixed country olives or regular kalamata olives

1/8 tsp salt

Directions:

Place greens in a large salad bowl. For dressing, whisk together olive oil, orange juice, and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl. Pour dressing over greens, gently tossing to mix.

Divide mixture among eight  salad plates. Top with onion rings,  orange sections, and olives.  Lightly sprinkle with salt. Makes 8 servings.

Serves 8
