Fresh Citrus Salad

April 22, 2010

Juicy tangelos  star in this easy throw together salad.   When your to busy to cook and want something tasty, stop at the grocery store on your way home for few fresh ingredients.  Cooked rotisserie chicken with some greens, fruit, veggies, nuts, dressing and you have yourself a low fat healthy meal.

Don’t buy your dressing just make a quick citrus vinaigrette to go with, it’s so simple here’s how:

Sweet Creamy Citrus Vinaigrette

1/4 cup orange juice or other citrus like grapefruit

1 T. mayonnaise

1/8 to 1/4 cup of canola oil

1 clove garlic pressed

1 T. citrus flavored vinegar or your balsamic

salt and pepper to taste

1 T. of chopped flat leaf parsley

In small mixing bowl whisk juice into the mayonnaise slowly, then add garlic,  vinegar, salt and pepper, parsley slowly add oil until it becomes like dressing.

Makes about 1/2 cup.

For the salad here’s what I used:

Leaf lettuce

Spinach leaves

Avocado

Red bell pepper
