Recipe – Sweet and Crunchy Salad

Sweet and Crunchy Salad

Kate shares a salad recipe that she makes when she wants to “mix it up a little bit.”

“Salads can be boring, but the Sweet and Crunchy Salad has just enough sweet, and plenty of texture! The homemade dressing is easy to make, and the oranges add the perfect amount of zest” Kate says.  It has become a go to side-dish for her when she wants to quickly add some flavor to a meal. 


2 bags of your favorite lettuce mix (field, spring, or spinach salad mix work great or 1 head of lettuce, chopped)
1 can mandarin oranges, drained
1 small onion, cut into wedges
1 cup pecan or almond slivers
1 package Ramen noodles, broken into pieces
Mix salad ingredients together in a large bowl.


1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1 cup canola or olive oil
4 teaspoons poppy seeds
Mix all dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.  Pour over the salad to your liking.  Enjoy!
