My Little So-Cal Sushine Salad


Rain, rain, Rain clouds, gray, black.... yes you are in Southern California and it is raining!
So I made a delicious simple salad yellow, and golden for a little sunshine in our plates!


Oranges, Dates and Hearts of Palm with Honey Citrus vinaigrette
-8 TO 12 ounces canned hearts of palm sliced
- 5 fresh dates cut in small pieces
- 2 fresh Organic Navel oranges peeled
- Fresh pepper

Honey citrus vinaigrette
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tbspoon Olive oil
- 3 tabspoon fresh squeezed oarange juice
- 1 tbspoon Honey

In a medium bowl, add salad items and vinaigrette items. Toss until coated.
Arrange salad mixture on serving plates.

If you close you eyes when teating this salad you can go exotic... this is a salad you may eat in Morroco too where Palm trees, Dates and oranges grow everywhere a little like here in Southern California. Southern California as so much in commun with Morroco: same climate, weather, vegetation, even landscape....

Oh sounds so delicious, I'd add a touch of cinnamon to complete my Moroccon dream salad.
Cheers,
