Winter Harvest Salad with Wild Rice, Dried Cranberries, Citrus and more! A light, refreshing and nutritious salad that is a great addition to your lunch or dinner menu.
Happy Holidays! I can’t believe that Christmas is only a few days away and the end of 2015 is coming to a close. 2015 was quite a year and I can’t wait for 2016! As my final new recipe for this year, I am sharing a simple salad made with one of my favorite organicgirl blends. This recipe came together at the last minute for a holiday dinner party. I wanted a side salad that was fresh, seasonal and easy and I already had all of the ingredients that I needed for this recipe. In fact, I even picked the fresh tangerines from my citrus trees. The Winter Harvet Salad with wild rice, cranberries and citrus is crisp, crunchy and flavorful.
For this recipe I used organicgirl I heart baby kale blend. The blend is always in my fridge because it is versatile and makes a great addition to salad, pasta and more! I added wild rice, tangerines, red onion, dried cranberries, and pepitas. Then, I tossed the salad in a simple citrus vinaigrette.
What is on your holiday dinner menu this year?
