Orange Salad


The 99 Cent Chef is not a big salad eater, however there are times when the fancy strikes. Rummaging through the refrigerator, I had no tomatoes, but plenty of oranges. Why not substitute?
An orange adds enough acidity that mixes well with olive oil. It's a light, simple salad; to lead you into the next few days of heavy holiday dining.


ORANGE SALAD
1-2 oranges (depending on size)
1 heart of romaine lettuce
Goat or feta cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
Pepper to taste

Directions

Cut out wedges of orange; add to bowl of roughly torn romaine lettuce. Squeeze out juice from the pulp that remains in the sliced orange, over the lettuce. Drizzle olive oil over salad. Add a small amount of crumbled goat or feta cheese. Freshly ground pepper to taste.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

I made this tonight...very good. So tell me so I can be extra envious ...does your 99 cent store actually have feta sometimes?

Yes Heather, although I've seen it only once. If you have a deli nearby
it works out about the same price-wise to purchase feta there.
