Orange and Romaine Toss

from Favorites


SALAD
1 head romaine lettuce, rinsed and torn
3 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1 (11oz) can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
croutons
1/3 cup halved pecans, toasted
3 ounces Bleu cheese, crumbled

DRESSING
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup lime juice
3 tablespoons red wine or apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons orange marmalade (or orange juice)
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

Combine lettuce, kiwi, oranges, and red onion in a large salad bowl.  Combine dressing ingredients in a jar and shake well.  Toss the salad with the dressing just before serving and top with croutons, nuts, and Bleu cheese.  (Note I prefer to toss the salad with only half the dressing and then people can add more to taste if desired).
