Winter Salad with Citrus Dressing

This healthy, delicious winter salad is paired with a homemade creamy orange-ginger dressing. Easy to prepare and ready in 15 minutes!


1 packet of symphony lettuce
1 cup cooked quinoa
3 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
3 tangerine or mandarins, slices
1 tablespoon red onion, finely diced
1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped

Orange-Ginger Dressing
1/2 cup cashews, soaked
1/4 cup water + more as needed
juice of 1 orange
1 – 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, to taste
1 inch knob fresh ginger, chopped or grated
1/2 small clove garlic
Himalayan salt & pepper, to taste

Orange-Ginger Dressing: Place all ingredients into food processor/blender and process until creamy. For a thinner dressing add 1 tablespoon water at a time until desired consistency. Taste for flavor, add the other half of the garlic clove if needed. Makes about 3/4 cup. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 – 6 days.

Salad: Peel the oranges, and slice width wise into 1/4 inch slices, or simply break them up into wedges. Serve individual salads with 1/3 of the leafy greens, 1/3 cup of cooked quinoa, 1 tablespoons pomegranate seeds, 1 teaspoon red onion, slices of 1 tangerine and chopped mint. Add a helping of dressing over top, mix together and enjoy!
