Mixed greens with pear and toasted almonds
1 tsp, grated
fresh orange juice
¼ tsp, or 1 teaspoon minced fresh
¼ tsp, freshly ground
5 oz, red leaf or other variety
sweet red pepper(s)
½ medium, seeded and thinly sliced
2 medium, ripe
2 Tbsp, toasted
- To make the dressing, combine the orange zest, juice, vinegar, oil, marjoram, salt, and ground pepper in a medium bowl. Place the greens and bell pepper in a salad bowl.
- Core and slice the pears, and toss immediately with the dressing to prevent the pears from turning brown. Add the pears and dressing to the salad and toss gently. Sprinkle with the almonds and serve at once. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.
