California Pistachio Salad

Kristina Vanni is going to serve us some great Californian recipes here on Tasting and Living. Kristina has been with us since the beginning and we love her wit and wonderful home-made American style food! So in the coming weeks you’ll be seeing more of her.

Mixed baby greens are topped with sliced apple, grapes, blue cheese and
pistachio nuts, then drizzled with an oil-free orange juice dressing.

6 tablespoons (1/3 cup) orange juice
3 cups mixed baby greens
1 tart apple, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 cup seedless grapes, halved
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/2 cup shelled pistachios


Whisk together garlic, mustard, vinegar and orange juice in a small
bowl. Refrigerate. Divide washed and dried greens equally among 4 salad
plates. Top with apples, grapes, blue cheese and pistachios. Drizzle
with dressing and serve right away.
