The Greensted has been known for high quality microgreens for 6 years. Microgreens go great on salads, of course. Our Wacky Salad greens mix has gained popularity this past three years. So let us introduce The Wacky Salad with Microgreens, the star of this easy, and delicious salad recipe. The Champagne dressing is light and refreshing. This makes a festive holiday salad, or any day salad.
Place salad greens w/microgreens and additional microgreens in a large serving bowl OR spread on large platter leaving center open. Choose an interesting serving plate, platter, shaped dish for holiday or special occasion serving. Note: if plating individually, place ingredients equally on plates, hand-pass dressing.
Arrange orange slices, pistachios and dried cranberries over top of greens.
Arrange avocado slices on top; sprinkle feta cheese crumbles. (If making ahead, hold on avocados and feta cheese until just before serving).
For dressing, whisk together orange juice, honey, champagne vinegar olive oil, Dijon mustard, cinnamon, lemon juice, salt until the salt has dissolved and the dressing is emulsified. Add freshly ground pepper per taste preference.
Dress salad just before serving OR put dressing in a small serving dish, placing dish in the middle of the large platter with the salad for a pretty presentation.
Make-ahead tips: Prep salad a day ahead. Have the oranges cut, and all of the components measured and ready. Refrigerate in separate, covered containers. Whisk together dressing and store in refrigerator (whisk the dressing again just prior to serving). Assemble just prior to serving.
