This is a really yummy salad & really lives up to it's name. It reminds one of sunshine & warmth. Coming from the Northeast where winter is long & cold it's a nice salad to fix in the winter as it is in summer.

  2. tear up as much lettuce as you need, into salad bowl.
    peel orange divide into sections, remove any seeds & cut into halves or thirds, add to lettuce
