For Christmas Eve I made a salad to contribute to the lovely meal my sister in law prepared. Thought I'd share the new recipe with you-it was a big hit!

Mixed Green Salad with Oranges, Dried Cranberries and Pecans

Citrus Salad Dressing

    • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons orange juice
    • 6 tablespoons dried cranberries
    • 3 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons Apple Cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
    • 2 bags of mixed baby greens
    • 3 oranges, peel and white pith removed, segmented
    • 3/4 cup pecans, toasted
    1. Bring 1 cup orange juice to simmer in heavy small saucepan. Remove from heat. Mix in dried cranberries. Let stand until softened, about 30 minutes. Drain well; discard soaking juice.
    2. Whisk oil, vinegar, orange peel and remaining 3 tablespoons orange juice in small bowl to blend. Mix in cranberries. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before serving.)
    1. Place greens in large bowl. Toss with dressing, then top salad with orange segments and pecans.
