Mandarin oranges give this crisp, cool salad a refreshing tang that will perk up any meal. There's even orange juice in the light vinaigrette that glistens as it coats the greens. —Heather Ahrens Columbus, Ohio

"I really enjoyed this salad. I was a bit confused to read that the description describes mandarin oranges, while the actual recipe calls for naval oranges (which I used). The dressing was quite tangy, which I enjoy. I think some crumbled feta would be a great addition too."
