“This is just the greatest salad! It's good with anything, a side for a pizza, as a mate to a steaming bowl of soup, or just like it is. It's simple, easy to prepare, and absolutely delish! The dressing is fabulous!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the juice of 1/2 orange, lemon juice, most of the red onion, olive oil, and salt. Whisk together until emulsified, taste and adjust with more salt or lemon juice if needed.
  2. Peel the remaining orange and cut into segments, removing any seeds you may encounter. Set aside.
  3. When you're ready to serve, place the salad greens in a large bowl. Toss very gently with a generous splash of the dressing. Add the orange segments and walnuts. Give another toss. Taste and decide if you need to add more dressing, if needed, add a bit more at a time, giving a good toss between additions. Make sure the nuts and citrus haven't all gone to the bottom, help them to the top. Serve the salad topped with the remaining red onion and olives.
