Orange Citrus Salad with Red Onion Honey Mustard Dressing

Forget about your traditional bed of greens for this salad.  And forget about oranges only being part a healthy snack or your morning orange juice.  This eccentric salad is light, juicy and loaded with vitamin C, a perfect starter to a dense meal of chicken or beef, as it cleans the palate and prepares digestion.


Ingredients: (per serving) 1 large orange.  Dressing: 1 large red onion chopped julienne style, 1/2 cup orange juice, 2 tbs dijon mustard, 2 tbs honey, 2 tbs white vinegar.  Garnish: 1 tbs of orange peel cut in thin strips, 3 tbs sugar.


Preparation: 1. Peel the orange and cut into slices.  Remove seeds.  Dressing: Place all the ingredients in a recipient and whisk together.  Garnish: Place the the orange peel in a pan with the sugar over high heat and stir around until candied.


To serve: Spread 5 orange slices on a plate and drizzle with the dressing.  Add salt, pepper and a dash of balsamic vinegar for extra flavour.  Garnish with a small bunch of candied orange peel.  Enjoy!
