From Susan in Sterling, VA, a citrus vinaigrette that brings together a popular Trader Joe's product with If & When Cumin Garlic Preserved Meyer Lemon Paste.
1 head of green leaf lettuce
1 grapefruit sectioned (peel & membrane removed)
1 navel orange sectioned (peel & membrane removed) - we love blood oranges in winter
1 cup pomegranate seeds
1/2 cup dried grapes for more color/bursts of flavor as a winter salad
Goat cheese crumbles (optional)
For the dressing:
1/4 cup olive oil
3 TBS citrus vinegar (Trader Joe's)
1 heaping TBS If & When Cumin Garlic Preserved Meyer Lemon Paste
1 crushed garlic clove
Kosher salt & ground pepper to taste
Prepare the dressing in a small food processor and let sit 30 minutes + if you can make the time (longer = stronger flavor).
In a serving bowl, prepare the vegetables and toss in with the fruit.
Add the cheese crumbles moments before dressing the salad.
Shake and pour the dressing over the salad.
Toss by hand for a more even distribution of flavor.
"Delish! Thanks for making such an awesome product! I am telling my friends!" - Susan
