For the salad:

  • 3/4 cup walnut halves
  • 10 ounces mixed salad greens (we used a mix containing baby spinach, lettuces, and greens)
  • 2 large navel oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese

For the citrus vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Put walnut halves in a dry skillet over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until lightly browned.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the salad greens, walnuts, oranges and red onion.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk all vinaigrette ingredients together.
  4. To serve, divide the salad green mixture into individual servings. Sprinkle with goat cheese and drizzle with dressing.
