Orange Dressing

  • ½ cup orange juice freshly squeezed
  • ¼ cup green onions or shallots thinly sliced/chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar or more apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp agave
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Pinch pepper


  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 5 oz mixed salad greens
  • 1 avocado thinly sliced
  • 2 clementines
  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds
  • Pinch pepper


  • In a small bowl add the orange juice, green onions, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, agave, salt and pepper. Whisk together to combine.
  • Bring a small skillet to medium-high heat and toast the sliced almonds until lightly brown and fragrant, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.
  • In a large serving bowl add the salad greens. Top with avocado, clementine, pomegranate seeds and sprinkle with pepper. Serve salad with the orange dressing on the side for drizzling.


Salad dressing can be made up to 3 days in advance. Store in the fridge in an airtight container. 
Salad can be prepared a few hours in advance if dressing is served on the side. Cover the bowl with wrap and keep in a cool area like the fridge or cold room.
