The Days of Salad

In the summer I look forward to lots of green salads. My salads must always have heirloom tomatoes, avocados, English cutecumbers, micro greens, and goat cheese. Sometimes I use mache, endive, or baby spinach for the base of the salad. I recently discovered an orange vinegar at the store. It made a wonderful vinaigrette dressing for the salad.

Orange Vinaigrette

3 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp orange vinegar

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

pinch curry powder

Whisk vinegar, mustard, salt, pepper, and curry powder together. Slowly drizzle the olive oil into the vinegar mixture while whisking. Pour over your favorite salad!
