Enjoy this tasty Spring Mix Salad with shaved carrots, sweet blueberries, salty feta cheese, and rich walnuts all drizzled with a tangy sweet citrus vinaigrette.  

Ingredients

Scale

Spring Mix Salad

  • 10 cups spring greens
  • 1 large carrot peeled and shaved into long ribbons
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup thin sliced red onions
  • ¼ cup feta cheese crumbles
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts

Orange Vinaigrette

  • 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
  • ¼ cup orange juice (about the juice from 1 orange)
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Add the spring greens to a large bowl.  Top with the carrots, blueberries, red onions, feta cheese, and walnuts. 
  2. Whisk the champagne vinegar, orange juice, orange zest, honey, Dijon mustard, and a pinch of salt together.
  3. Drizzle in the olive oil into the champagne vinegar mixture while slowly whisking.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Notes

  • Peel and trim the carrot first removing the faded exterior color. Then use the peeler to shave long thin strips from the carrot. 
  • Look for a prepackaged blend of spring mix that does not show any signs of breaking down. 
  • To keep it really fresh purchase a small block of feta and crumble it yourself. Goat cheese and cotija cheese are both good substitutions.
