Winter Salad

Blood Oranges, Mango and Pomegranate make this a perfect winter salad. The colors are so bright and cheery that they will lift your mood, and the fruits and mixed greens are loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants making this a very healthy choice. For the dressing, I used an orange- infused olive oil and a white balsamic vinegar. Feel free to substitute whatever flavors you like for olive oil or vinegar, though.

serves 8 ( 5 points +)

  • 1 c. pomegranate arils
  • 1 mango, peeled and chopped
  • 3 blood oranges, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced thinly
  • 1/4 c. pine nuts, toasted
  • 5 oz. mixed salad greens


  • 2 oz. orange olive oil
  • 2 oz. white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 T. honey
  • 1 tsp. dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste

Place mixed greens in a large bowl. Top with remaining salad ingredients. 
For dressing, place all ingredients in a jar with a lid. Cover and shake well. Drizzle dressing over salad right before serving and toss gently to coat.
