Recipe: Summer Salad with a Citrus Vinaigrette

Start off summer with a refreshing salad with a light, homemade citrus vinaigrette. Bring a little summer in with you to work or share it with friends at a backyard cook out.


2 small heads romaine lettuce, cut into bite size portions
1/2 to 1 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 to 2 cups chopped tomatoes
3/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup Swiss cheese, grated
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Citrus Vinaigrette
1/4 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon olive oil


1) In small bowl, whisk together all the Citrus Vinaigrette ingredients. Set aside or store in refrigerator.

When whisking vinegar and oil dressings combine all ingredients except oil in a small bowl. Slowly add the oil while mixing vigorously with a whisk.

2) Combine all salad ingredients except croutons in a large bowl.

3) When ready to serve, pour dressing over salad and toss. Sprinkle croutons over top.
