Sweet Summer Salad

June 26 2010

We're going to a BBQ tomorrow afternoon at CrossFit Vancouver to kick off the Summer and I thought I'd share the recipe for the salad that I'm going to be taking with us!
Romaine with Oranges and Pecans

2 Heads Romaine Lettuce (wash and cut into bit-size pieces)
3/4 to 1 Cup Pecan Halves - Toasted (175 ml)
2 Oranges Peeled and Sliced
1/4 Cup Vinegar (50 ml)
1/4 Cup Sugar (125 ml)
1 Cup Olive Oil (250 ml)
1 Tsp. Salt (5 ml)
1 Small Red Onion
1 Tsp. Dry Mustard (5 ml)
2 Tbsps. Water (30 ml)

Place lettuce, oranges and pecans in salad bowl. Combine vinegar, olive oil, sugar, salt, red onion, mustard and water in a blender. Blend until it's very well mixed. You can make the dressing ahead of time and refrigerate until you're ready to toss and serve the salad. And if you don't use all of the dressing you can use as a dip for veggies or fresh fruit!
