COLORFUL FRUIT-AND-GREENS SALAD

Serves 4 FRUITS & VEGETABLES - EAT 5 TO 9 A DAY

Does it seem strange to combine fruit with salad greens? It shouldn’t anymore. This colorful combination of strawberries, orange, apples and fennel goes perfectly with mesclun mix — found at most grocery stores pre-cut and sold by the pound or pre-packaged — and a light, fruity vinaigrette.


Vinaigrette
• ¾ cup fresh orange juice
• 2 Tbsp. white wine vinegaror champagne vinegar
• 1 tsp. olive oil
• ¼ tsp. black pepper
• 1 pinch salt

• 4 cups mixed salad greens, such as mesclun
• 1 orange, peeled and sliced
• ½ cup fresh fennel, diced
• ½ cup strawberries, sliced
• 1 Golden Delicious apple or Bartlett pear, cored and chopped

 
In a large salad bowl, whisk together vinaigrette ingredients.

Add salad greens and toss.

Arrange fruit and fennel on top of greens and serve.
