I created this salad as a nice fresh side to a light summer meal. Easy to change or customize for different tastes. You can plate the salad individually for a nice presentation.

  • Toast walnuts in the preheated oven until golden brown and fragrant, about 5 minutes.

  • Slice top and bottom off 1 orange and set on a flat work surface. Cut downwards from the top, following the curve of the fruit, to remove all of the skin and pith. Repeat with remaining orange and grapefruit.

  • Holding 1 orange over a bowl to catch juice, cut both sides of each segment away from the connective membrane and transfer to a separate bowl. Squeeze extra juice from the membranes into the bowl. Repeat with remaining orange and grapefruit.

  • Mix toasted walnuts, salad greens, and feta cheese into the bowl of orange and grapefruit segments.

  • Pour orange and grapefruit juice into a glass measuring cup. Add enough pomegranate juice to reach 1/3 cup. Whisk in 1 teaspoon orange zest, sugar, parsley, and salt. Whisk in oil until dressing is thick.

  • Drizzle dressing over salad.

Cook's Note:

Substitute olive oil for the vegetable oil if desired.

This was good but the directions regarding the orange and grapefruit were not very clear to me. In order to get enough juice for the dressing I took a couple segments of each and squeezed the juice out of them. The dressing was not thick but just enough to give the greens a good wilt. That might have been my fault though for not fully understanding the directions regarding the orange and grapefruit. I'm not sure? Regardless I liked this and it is one I will make again. Bacon would be a nice addition. Read More
