[Not an Average] Salad

After getting home from the gym one day, I wanted something light yet filling. This salad definitely hit the spot. It’s sweet, salty, juicy and crunchy all at once. If this flavor combo seems unconventional to you, do not fear. Everything happens to go really well together.

(1 serving)


1 c mesclun greens

1 mandarin orange

1 bacon strip, cooked and crumbled

2 tbsp feta crumbles


1 tbsp maple syrup

1 tsp spicy brown mustard

A splash of white vinegar

1 tbsp EVOO

Pinch of salt+pepper

Layer the mandarin pieces, bacon and feta over the greens. Whisk together the ingredients of the dressing and drizzle over salad. Enjoy.

Love citrus in my salads: great combo.
Know what else would be good in this? Pomegranate seeds and maybe some nuts.
