I CAME up with this salad when an unexpected guest showed up for lunch and I had to "make do" with what was on hand. I thought it would complement my homemade ginger chicken soup, and it did! It's a wonderful make-ahead salad and very attractive. -Mary Paulson, Hopkins, Minnesota

"This is a delicious recipe. I made this for guests, but added a little water to the honey to thin it. This can be served with shredded cabbage instead of salad greens. Also, nuts, dried cranberries and/or raisins can be added. I marinate the orange slices and keep extra honey/water mixture on hand to use for a salad dressing. This is one of the easiest and most delicious salads I've made. Thanks!
