Winter Salad Ingredients
We combined juicy mandarin oranges and dried cranberries for the ultimate sweetness duo. You will also find matchstick carrots in this recipe, which also add a layer of sweetness and contribute a whole array of nutritional benefits to the meal. Our homemade sourdough pepper croutons add a crunch to the salad and filling fibre to keep you fuller for longer. Top it off with roasted sunflower seeds and shaved parmesan cheese, and this well-rounded meal will surely be a new favourite. Everything is served on our greenhouse lettuce with a mix of red cabbage. And don't forget the dress! Our citrus vinaigrette recipe is one of a kind!
The Citrus Vinaigrette Recipe
The lemon thyme vinaigrette perfectly balances sweet and savoury flavours in the Citrus Harvest Salad recipe. This is one of those dressings you can never get bored of and never get enough of! It combines white wine vinegar with dijon mustard, honey, and plenty of fresh lemon juice. You may also taste a hint of garlic to warm you up and fight off colds during the winter months. This winter salad would not be complete without this tasty homemade dressing, and we are so excited for you to experience it on repeat!
Highlight on Mandarin Oranges
This citrus salad doesn't highlight just any old citrus. We purposefully feature the mandarin orange because of its unique and specific characteristics. These oranges tend to be sweeter and have a stronger taste profile. Some say the mandarin even has a vanilla and spicy component in its flavour profile. They have a strong citrus aroma that is both fresh and pleasant. You may also detect a nutty, woody, or floral aroma when you indulge in this winter citrus salad. Mandarin oranges contain Vitamins A, B, and a high level of Vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals, prevents infections, and is great for the health of your skin. Mandarins are also a substantial source of insoluble fibre and soluble fibre. Insoluble fibre keeps things moving in your digestive system and flushes out harmful toxins, while soluble fibre helps lower cholesterol and keeps blood sugar balanced by slowing food absorption.
