Orange Cucumber Tossed Salad Recipe

"This salad has been a family favorite for as long as I can remember," Betty Tobias writes from Nashua, New Hampshire. "It's prettiest when it's served in a glass bowl, with orange and cucumber slices lining the sides. Often, I'll double the dressing recipe so I have some on hand for the next time I make it."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium navel oranges, peeled and sliced
  • 1 medium cucumber, sliced

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup seasoned salad croutons

"This is a very nice, light tasting salad that would go with many meals since it doesn't have an overpowering taste. It is a pretty presentation too with the orange, green and purple rather than the typical carrots and tomatoes. I made it just for two so I didn't line the bowl or anything like that. I cut the dressing in half and it made still a bit too much for us. I will be making this salad again."
