1/4 cup Lemon Juice

1/4 cup White Balsamic Vinegar

2 small Shallots

2 cloves Garlic

3 leaves Basil

2 tbs Honey



Extra Virgin Olive Oil


In a food processor, put the shallots, the garlic and mix them together.

Add the basil and mix for  about 2 minutes.

Add vinegar, lemon, orange, honey, salt, and pepper in the food processor.

Mix all the ingredients for another 2 minutes.

very slowly add the extra virgin olive oil.about 1 cup

Set the dressing aside. If you are not going to make the salad right away, keep the dressing refrigerated.

In a bowl, put the greens and a small amount of the dressing.

Mix the greens. Add the dressing if needs. Be sure not to wet the greens too much.

Move the greens to the serving plates, add fresh pieces of oranges on each plate. If you like you can also add some mandarine oranges or slices of lemon.

Garnish with slices of oranges.


Buon Appetito!

Is this the salad you made for the luncheon two weeks ago? If not, can you share that recipe? It was amazing.
