Mandarin Salad

I love this light and refreshing salad either on its own as is or its delicious stuffed into pitta. as well as the mandarin its also good with crisp apple slices. it takes just a matter of minutes to make. am sending it to spices ect for the 15 minute cooking event.

Ingredients (serves 4)
2 x 310g cans mandarin segments, drained
( I used fresh mandarins, as many as liked)
1 large red capsicum, deseeded, thinly sliced
2 large carrots, coarsely grated
60g mixed salad leaves, trimmed
3 shallots, trimmed, sliced
2/3 cup (90g) walnuts, chopped
1 tbs sesame seeds, toasted
1 1/2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
1 tbs red wine vinegar
2 tsp honey
3cm piece fresh ginger, finely grated
Whisk the dressing ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.
Place the remaining ingredients into a large serving bowl. Drizzle with the dressing and toss gently to combine.

That sounds good. I have been quite nostalgic for tinned mandarines recently - and this sounds healthier than the Grand Marnier mousse I was thinking about! It's be great with duck.

This looks lovely, perfect for lunch during this hot weather we're having in the UK at the moment. Will definately be trying! xx
