Winter Crisp Salad

This salad has a great crisp texture thanks to iceberg lettuce, cucumbers, radishes and apples. A tangy vinaigrette dressing featuring fresh orange juice and red wine vinegar give it a fresh light flavor.

Crisp veggies and fruit for salad

I like to slice the veggies and fruit very thin.

This salad is a fun change from the basic garden greens.



1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped
1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced
1 bunch radishes, thinly sliced
1 large crisp apple


3 TBSP olive oil
3 TBSP fresh-squeezed orange juice
1 TBSP red wine vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 TBSP minced fresh parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper


  1. Chop lettuce; thinly slice cucumber, radishes and apple.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together dressing ingredients.
  3. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

This recipe was part of a my dinner menu from eMeals this week. I have been using eMeals for two months now and I really love it! It gives me a week’s worth of dinner recipes with accompanying shopping list. It’s great to be able to head to the store with my list printed out (with any tweaks I’ve made) and purchase all the ingredients I need for a week of dinners for around $100. It saves me time and money, and lowers the stress of “what’s for dinner?”. Plus I get to try out new recipes each week. Most dinners have been good and a few have been outstanding!

eMeals - Easy Meals for Busy People!They have plans for different dietary needs such as Gluten Free, Clean Eating, Vegetarian, Low-Carb, Portion Control, Simple Gourmet and Classic. I started out with the Clean Eating plan, but decided to switch to Simple Gourmet after a few weeks and it has been a better fit with my family’s tastes. Questions about eMeals?
