One of the nice things about rooming with K for the Summer is getting to make dinner for two! He has a CSA (community supported agriculture) membership, so we have a weekly influx of fresh produce (lately lots greens). This means lots of summer salads for dinner because they're quick & healthy to whip up!
Mandarin Oranges (slice in thirds).
Red Onion (sliced thin)
Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette:
3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2/3 tbsp honey
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/3 c extra virgin olive oil
salt + pepper to taste
I love the idea of making salad dressings from scratch instead of buying premade. They're so much tastier have less preservatives & are more cost effective (I mix mine up in a mason jar and shake all the ingredients up).
