Don’t try to focus your eyes on this picture, it won’t work. I took a terribly fussy, out of focus picture! But I wanted to include it since it shows the wonderful color of the salad I made for Christmas Eve dinner. This is completely simple and isn’t an actual recipe since I didn’t make the dressing, just used store bought raspberry vinaigrette, but it was good.

2 bag salad mix
3 endives, cleaned and cut into 1 inch pieces
2 oranges, segments cut out
1/2 cup dried cranberries

I made two bowls of salad with this. I tossed the cut endives on top to add flavor to the lettuce and add a nice crunch. To cut the segments out of the orange, first cut off the white pith and then carefully cut out the segments so you just get orange and none of the extra. This shows how to do it. It’s a great way to include citrus in salads. Toss onto the salad along with the cranberries and enjoy.

Notes: Adding nuts to this salad would have been a nice addition.

Servings: 10 servings.
