For Dressing:
½ c olive oil or salad oil
1/3 c lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
½ tsp dry mustard or 1 tsp dijon
½ tsp of salt
¼ tsp of pepper
½ tsp garlic powder or 1 crushed garlic clove
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

For Salad:
2 gala apples, peeled and sliced thinly
1 small can of mandarin oranges, drained
½ c dried cranberries
bleu or gorgonzola cheese crumbles
½ c pecans (optional)
1 bag spinach or butter lettuce

  1. Mix all dressing ingredients together. Whisk well in a bowl or put in a bottle and shake well.
  2. Wash lettuce and dry well. Place in large bowl.
  3. Place toppings on salad.
  4. Pour lemon vinaigrette on salad, tossing until dressing is evenly spread.
  5. Chill and serve cold.

Tip – Make extra dressing and store in fridge. It will keep for a month. The vinaigrette also makes a great marinade. Marinade chicken, sauté, and serve on salad for a twist.
