How to Make California Salad ( off the cuff )
- place almonds & olive oil in saute pan
- 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
- slice red onion into very thin slices, cut larger ring into pieces if needed, add to lettuce.
peel & cut avocado into cubes, add to lettuce, toss in cranberries.
- brown almonds in olive oil, pour over salad & immediately pour red wine vinegar on salad & toss
the balsamic vinegar is not as sharp & a bit sweet ( I like it better but not as pretty)
