Tropical Green Salad with Apricot Vinaigrette
2 ripe, firm pears, cored and sliced
8 C. bite-size pieces leafy greens
5 ripe kiwis, peeled, and sliced
1 can Mandarin oranges, well drained (I use 2)
1/4 C. chopped honey roasted almonds (I use the sliced almonds accents)
Soak pears briefly in lemon juice to prevent browning. In a large salad bowl, combine and lightly toss the greens, kiwis, pears, oranges, and almonds.
1/4 c. white wine vinegar
3/4 c. apricot all fruit jam
1/2 c. canola oil
In blender, blend the vinegar and jam on low. With motor running, slowly add oil. Add some sugar if it is too tart for your taste. (A definate) Pour into serving container and let individuals add dressing to their salad.
This one is my fav! But both are delectable!!! Enjoy!
