Orange Poppy Seed Salad Recipe

In our area, olives, walnuts, pomegranates and oranges are grown locally, and I love using them in recipes. I include all four ingredients in a simple but refreshing romanine salad.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 cups torn romaine
  • 1 can (15 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2/3 cup canola or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine romaine, oranges and walnuts. Place oil, sugar, vinegar, poppy seeds, salt and mustard in a jar with a tight-fitting lid; shake well. Pour desired amount over romaine mixture; toss to coat. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds. Refrigerate remaining dressing. Yield: 8 servings.
