Salad of Dates, Orange and Feta Cheese


About 2 cups mixed greens; choose a mix that includes some bitter lettuce.
2 oranges, Cara Cara or Navel, peeled and sliced (see photos below)
3 oz. feta cheese
1/2 c. pitted and sliced dates (about 10 dates, see photo below)
1/3 c. chopped pistachios


Vinaigrette
3 T. white wine vinegar
1 T. honey
1/4 t. orange flower water (opt.)
1 shallot (about 1 T.)
1/3 c. extra virgin olive oil

The vinaigrette can be made hours before you toss with prepared salad ingredients.

Gently toss all salad ingredients with vinaigrette and serve immediately.
