Mixed Greens with Homemade Dressing

Mixed greens, mandarin oranges, dried cranberries, Gorgonzola cheese & homemade creamy balsamic dressing.

Homemade Creamy Balsamic Vinegar Dressing
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt

I don't use any mixing bowl for my homemade salad dressings. I always use a glass jar. Add all ingredients and shake well until blended. You will have some extra dressing for a salad later on.

Salad Ingredients
Mixed Greens
Mandarin Oranges (canned and drain juice)
Dried Cranberries
Gorgonzola Cheese (prefer this to Feta for this salad the Gorgonzola cheese compliments the fruits)

Easy salad to pair with any meal. :) I paired it with my Chicken & Wild Rice Soup.
