There is nothing better than going to your backyard and selecting something to eat. Leafy greens are best in late winter and early spring. I like to experiment with light vinaigrettes. My dad was recently giving away bags of fresh, sweet oranges from his tree. I improvised and made this light slightly sweet vinaigrette for the salad.
1 Tbsp of honey
1 Clove of minced garlic.
2 Tbsp of freshly squeezed orange juice
1 Tbsp of olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
I combined the ingredients and mixed well. Then I poured the mixture onto a bed of greens consisting of spinach, mizuna mustard, and salad bowl lettuce. I topped with Parmesan and orange slices. Viola, a light but flavorful salad.
