Here is a refreshing winter green salad featuring oranges. The salad is drizzled with a sweet and spicy sweet chili vinaigrette dressing. A great side dish to enjoy with dinner or lunch! The vinaigrette is an unusual combination of Thai flavors mixed with Dijon mustard. The flavors come together so well. This is an adaptation of her salad with a couple of twists!”

This salad is yummy, especially the dressing. I often use Hazelnut oil, as well. In winter, ruby grapefruit is nice. We have some great tangelos out right now and that is what I used last night. I cook what is in season…mostly!
Orange and Radish Salad with Cinnamon Vinaigrette
This is my adaptation of a salad recipe I found on an Egyptian tourist site. A complexity of flavors, freshness from the oranges, and a bit of heat from the warm spices and radish, made this a wonderful compliment to the grilled halibut.
