1canmandarin oranges, reserving 3 tablespoon of juice 11oz can
½cupsliced red onion
For the dressing
Combine dressing ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid, shake vigorously. Refrigerate.
For the crispy feta & herby honey
Blot the block of feta dry with a paper towel and slice into ¼" to ½" wedges. Dredge in flour, then the egg wash, then the bread crumbs. Pan fry in ½ - 1 inch of hot oil. Allow to drain on paper towels or a clean repurposed brown paper bag.
Chop herbs and mix with honey. Set aside until needed. There will be extra honey to save and drizzle on muffins, cornbread, biscuits, ricotta cheese & toast.
For the salad assembly.
Prepare greens (and sprouts if you have them) in a large bowl. (If I want to present this on the table or buffet I'll divide the ingredients and place them in groups or sections. If I'm making this family-style I'll just toss everything together.)Add the oranges, feta, onion, cranberries, avocado, mixed nuts. Drizzle the feta with herby honey then spoon on some Mandarin Orange Citrus Dressing and toss. Enjoy!
