Summertime… and the supper is easy and breezy.
Suppers in summertime should be light, easy and breezy… breezy in the sense that after you eat dinner you will never feel sluggish and stuffed but feel refreshed and healthily nourished.
Salads I think are the best “thirst quenchers” anyone can happily munch on and not feel a bit weighed down after.
This is just a simple salad of regular greens, cherry tomatoes, slivers of red onions and apple slices. What makes this salad summery sweet is this Orange Marmalade-Dijon Vinaigrette…Tangy and Sweet and as fast as a passing breeze to do.
ORANGE MARMALADE-DIJON VINAIGRETTE
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon or Honey Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
pinch of salt
freshly cracked black pepper (optional)
1/2 cup of canola oil
Put all ingredients in a jar and shake the jar vigorously until mixture gets emulsified.
Serve on the side or lightly dress the salad just before serving.
Note: This dressing is also great with a salad of Mandarin orange slices, iceberg lettuce, green onions and crushed candid almonds.
