This is a beautiful and delicious salad. The basic recipe comes from ChelseasMessyApron.com. I modified it quite a bit, trying different types of fruit and presentation. One thing that I found is when my golden raspberries are ripe, they make an excellent fruit component. I’ve made this in one large bowl served family-style and also in separate bowls served individually. The dressing recipe is enough to serve 4-6.

  • SALAD INGREDIENTS
  • Greens of any kind (Pictured is a variety of young greens picked from my daughter’s garden)
  • Beet root, cooked and chopped
  • Avocado, chopped
  • Fruit, chopped if it is small (I’ve used fresh mandarin oranges, nectarines, golden raspberries, use your imagination)
  • Pistachio nuts, shelled, roasted, and salted
  • Goat cheese crumbles
  • DRESSING INGREDIENTS
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp. orange zest
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Onion powder
  • Salt

Build the salad however you would like. Whisk the dressing ingredients together. Dress the salad just prior to serving.
