This lovely, light salad dressing is made with freshly squeezed tangerine juice, lemon zest, olive oil and raw honey. I use a handheld juicer to squeeze the juice and a microplane to zest the lemon.

I love citrus! It is about the only thing available around here this time of year – and I really think God made it available this time of year to make us happier and brigher during the winter 😉
Agreed! A little bit of sunshine in winter!
Linda, I made this salad on Superbowl Sunday… it was delicious! I used raspberries instead of the pomegranate seeds and I caramelized the walnuts… YUM! Thanks for another wonderful recipe!
You are welcome! Glad it was a hit!
