Salad Ingredients

  • Mandarin oranges
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Walnuts
  • Dried cranberries

Salad Dressing Ingredients


  • Mandarin oranges. Use approximately 3 mandarin oranges, peeled and segmented.  You can also use canned mandarins (1 can or 15 Oz).
  • Roast Brussels sprouts (each one sliced in half) in the preheated oven at 375 F in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet for about 20 minutes.
  • Walnuts.  Use whole walnuts, or better yet, candied walnuts.  I used store-bought candied walnuts that were delicious and looked beautiful in this salad
  • Assemble the salad by combining together peeled and segmented mandarin oranges, roasted Brussels sprouts, walnuts, and dried cranberries in a large bowl.
  • Prepare the balsamic glaze by cooking down balsamic vinegar together with honey until reduced by about half.  Drizzle over the mandarin orange salad.  Or Combine ¼ cup of White Mandarin Balsamic with 2 tablespoons of Basil EVOO.  Whisk until emulsified.  Drizzle the mandarin orange salad with this mixture.
