So you’ve had a busy day and you are headed to a dinner party or a get together where you have to bring something. With only minutes to prepare, you can make this delicious, healthy, beautiful salad. Just the dressing’s name itself, Orange Vanilla Bean, sounds fancy, right?
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 large container of Mesclun Greens (approximately 4 cups)
4 oz. Goat cheese crumbles
1 package of blackberries
Juice of 3 oranges
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup of Grape Seed Oil
1 Whole Vanilla Bean
Agave nectar/honey (to taste)
freshly ground pepper (to taste)
salt (to taste)
Let’s be time efficient and toast the pecans while we’re preparing the dressing. Watch them carefully so they don’t burn.
Juice the oranges and the lime and put them in a blender with the oil and blend until fully emulsified. Cut the vanilla bean and scrape out the seeds. Add the agave/honey, pepper and salt. Blend again until dressing is mixed.
Add salad ingredients to the bowl. Voila! Now wasn’t that easy?
