Super Easy,Quick & Pretty Orange Salad

This salad is great to take to potlucks, as it takes under 10 minutes to make (dressing is easy, but must chill)
Also, all items can be purchased many days in advance.


Jkath's Favorite Orange Salad

Make Dressing first, as it needs to chill:
1/2 c. cider vinegar
1 c. granulated sugar
Microwave 2+ minutes on high till boiling
Stir, and add:
1/2 c. oil
Juice of 1 large navel orange
Stir & store in bottle; Shake right before using

Salad - - - -
In large bowl, mix:
1 prepackaged mixed greens
1 prepackaged baby spinach
2 cans (drained) mandarin oranges
2 green onions, sliced
1+ small package almond slivers
1/2+ small tub bleu cheese crumbles
Add:
1 packaged (I used Louis Rich) honey roasted chicken (not slices!), cut up
Stir gently

Put into glass bowl (really looks pretty), and top with:
1 package fresh raspberries
prepackaged candied pecans (just enough to look right)

Just before serving, drizzle with orange dressing

I made this for guests the other night.. minus the chicken, nuts, blue cheese and raspberries. Thanks so much for posting the recipe. Everyone LOVED it.

I served it in homemade parmisian cheese bowls with cherry tomatoes on the side. SO pretty! :D

What a lovely presentation, pds! I am most impressed!

And thanks for the report, too, that bumped this one up. I had missed it and was just thinking about making a Mandarin Orange salad this morning. Thanks to JKath, I now know how to make that unique dressing!!!

(copying...pasting...)

lol.. I was very impressed with myself too!
I'd never tried to make the bowls before.. thinking "NO WAY, I can't do it"
But, they turned out beautifully. SO easy to do once you try!

The dressing is wonderful.
I"m going to make this salad again soon.. just the way Jkath posted it.
The other night I was serving salmon so, didn't really need the chicken and I forgot to buy nuts...

Hope you like it as much as we did. :D :D

I'm so glad you liked it!
I made it up from what I had on hand, actually

The dressing is one mom made up about a million years for her chinese chicken salad. I just added the orange juice for flavor.

We're going to dinner at a friends tomorrow night and I'm making this again.

I'm sure it will be a hit, again. It always is!

oh wonderful! It just occurred to me that a couple slices of kiwi would be pretty on top as well.
