Caesar salad is great, but sometimes I need a break. Guy won't eat fruit or nuts on his salad, so I'm in this one alone. This salad is so refreshing, especially with the citrus vinaigrette.

Leafy Citrus Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette
INGREDIENTS: Mixed greens --a good handful for each person
Orange and grapefruit sections -- 4-5 total for each person
Toasted pecans or walnuts -- 6-7 total for each person
Sweet onions or red onions, sliced thin -- 1 nice slice, separated, for each person
Mixed olives -- about 5-6 for each person

Citrus Vinaigrette: 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup orange juice
1 tsp. honey
1/2 tsp. McCormick's Basil and Garlic Seasoning Blend

DIRECTIONS: Prepare vinaigrette by blending all ingredients. Refrigerate to develop flavors for at least 1 hour. Prepare individual salads: place greens on plate first. Top with fruit sections, then nuts, then onions, and last olives. Drizzle vinaigrette over each salad before serving.
