This is a lot more delicious than I imagined it would be. I used clementine sections instead of orange, unrefined extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, a good pimento stuffed green olive but would recommend to try with black, no sunflower seeds but for a little of the flavour I added a drizzle of unrefined sunflower oil, plus the rest of the ingredients. I would like to make this again with black olives. Made for January's Tag Game ~ Nueces ~ Nuts in the Spain & Portugal forum.
I was looking for a recipe from Spain for my book club dinner, and while a bit skeptical, gave this a try. It was a huge hit! I followed the suggestions and served it on a bed of fresh spinach to add color. There was some leftover, and it was still good the next night. My hubby has asked that we add this to our regulars file. Thank you for a recipe we will enjoy again and again!
Beautiful and colorful salad with lots of flavor! Everyone at the table enjoyed it! I made a few changes according to what I had on hand, etc. First, replaced raspberry vinegar with orange muscat champagne vinegar and dates for golden raisins.The mixture was served over a bed of baby spinach leaves and hearts of romaine. I didn't bother to soak the dried fruit either. Yesterday I found heirloom oranges from California and they were a bright sunburst of flavor in this salad. A fruity Spanish olive oil worked best, too. Thanks for posting. Reviewed for Vegetarian Swap #19-2010.
I love salads with fruit and this one was perfect. I used lemon juice and added just a pinch of sugar. Keeper recipe for us. Made for Gimme 5 tag
A GREAT salad, full of color. I used navel oranges and followed the recipe as written, except served the vinaigrette on the side and served on top of some baby lettuce greens. Wonderful flavors and so easy to put together. Thanks Sydney Mike ~ made for ZWT5 ~ SPAIN Challenge!
This salad was extremely easy to throw together....then beautiful and delicious to boot! I followed the recipe precisely and was very pleasantly surprised at how the flavors and textures of the fruits and onion came together with the raspberry vinegar and extra virgin-olive oil. I will make this again soon with no changes other than the addition of a bed of spring mix greens.
This has an interesting combination of ingredients that work well together to create a light summer salad. I used the lemon juice in place of the raspberry vinegar. Made for *ZWT 5*
Very nice and pretty salad. I'm not a big black olive fan so I only used a few. Made for ZWT5
