I was thumbing through Michelle Obama’s American Grown prior to a demo at Whole Foods one day and found this recipe. I quickly gathered all the ingredients and substituted my Apple Cider vinaigrette for hers. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results!
Doing a demo at Whole Foods is often food for thought. In this case, they were having a mega-sale on mandarin oranges. I paired it with Apple Cider vinaigrette one day and Chocolate vinaigrette the next.
The first time I made this salad was for the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance’s annual Turn Up The Heat Gala. It seemed appropriate as it is loaded with antioxidants and features many of the vegetables that are recommended as part of a healthy, cancer-fighting diet.
