Take-out Tuesday, Citrus Salad with Creamy Orange Vinaigrette

Here’s a wonderful winter salad to make your mouth, & your body, happy  πŸ˜Š


Kale, spinach, citrus and a creamy orange vinaigrette


The vinaigrette  turns creamy with the addition of 1 T sour cream or Greek yogurt


Mix all the other ingredients in a jar first, then add the sour cream or yogurt


Simple magic!


Massage the kale by gently squeezing it with your hands, removing any stems, and give the leaves a rough chop


I used equal parts kale and torn spinach leaves, blood oranges, navel oranges, and grapefruit sections


Guaranteed to brighten your day!

    Love the dressing and citrus combo Jenna! I keep trying to convince myself I like kale in salads. I need to look for Tuscan kale and see if I find it more palatable πŸ™‚
