Caribbean Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

Here is a delicious and fruity salad that’s perfect for an evening meal. I served it along with my Wheat Berry Salad with Strawberries and Dried Cherries which made a delectably light meal for a Sunday evening.

The recipe was inspired by Chilis‘ Caribbean Salad.

Here’s what you’ll need – no measurements are provided so you can scale it to the size salad you want:
Mixed greens (spring mix or your favorite salad mix)
Fresh pineapple
Mandarin oranges (if you buy canned be sure to buy ones that are not in syrup or sugar)
Dried cherries
Red bell pepper
Green onions, chopped
Cilantro (to taste) – I didn’t have any and it was still good without it
Sprinkle of sesame seeds

Honey lime dressing:
1/8 cup lime juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup cider vinegar
(this will be more dressing than you’ll need but it’s a nice dressing to keep on hand)

Printer-friendly version

Start by placing mixed greens in the bottom of a bowl.

Add fresh pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, dried cherries, chopped red bell pepper, green onions, cilantro, sesame seeds, and toss.

In a separate bowl or measuring cup prepare dressing by whisking together lime juice, olive oil, honey and cider vinegar.

Enjoy! – a light, refreshing meal or accompaniment.
