Red Wine and Honey Salad with Fruit


Red Wine and Honey Salad with Fruit recipe by Barefeet In The Ktichen
I love fruit in a summer salad. The combination of fruits along with the sweet and tangy dressing was a great balance. I used the dehydrated pineapple for the first time and I could not be happier with the result. Fresh pineapple would work every bit as well or possibly better, but honestly, the re-hydrated pineapple tasted very much like fresh.

We had this salad for dinner, along with Grilled Ono and Grilled Pattypans. It was a simple, light and easy summer meal.

Salad Ingredients:

6 cups mixed salad greens
1/2 lb fresh strawberries, thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh or rehydrated pineapple, sliced very thin (approximately 1/8" thick)
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1/8 red onion, very thinly sliced

Dressing Ingredients: Orange, Red Wine and Honey Vinaigrette
recipe inspired by Whisked Away

1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup light olive oil
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper

Whisk dressing ingredients together and set aside. Prep salad and drizzle just a tiny bit of the marinade over the top. The recipe makes almost 3/4 of a cup dressing and I only used about 1/4 cup. Store the remaining dressing in the refrigerator. Toss the salad gently to coat with dressing before serving. Enjoy!
