Spring Goodies Salad

You need: 1 bag mixed spring greens (baby spinach, lettuce, arugula, et cetera), 1 orange, 1 piece ginger root, a handful of dried or fresh cranberries, 2-3 small red radishes, anything else you fancy in your salad.

How to:

Wash the radishes well. Slice the tops and bottoms off and cut into thin slices. (If you want to keep the greens, I’m going to experiment tomorrow with cooking them).

Cut the orange in half, along the segments, not across them. That means, cut it from top to bottom, not across it’s middle. Juice one half, and peel the other. Remove the white portion from the segments, and any seeds.

Put the greens in a big salad bowl. Add the radish and orange segments. Also the cranberries, and anything else you want to add.

Grate 1 tsp ginger into the orange juice. Mix well.

Pour the orange/ginger dressing over the salad before serving.
