I've changed the name of this blog to What's Cooking (in Yvonne's Kitchen) because I will be getting a kitchen of my own very soon, it maybe small but will be able to produce more goodies to share with everyone!

Refreshing Summer Salad

Beat the heat of summer with this salad... a truly refreshing treat. For sinful indulgence, toss in avocado cubes or chopped pecans.

2 heads baby romaine lettuce (torn into pieces)
8 cherry tomatoes (cut into halves)
1 oranges (cut into wedges)
1/4 cup craisin or dried cranberry

Cranberry orange vinaigrette
1 tsp Dijon mustard
2 tbsp balsamaic vinegar
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp cranberry jam
1 tsp orange juice
1 tsp orange rind (for the extra kick)

1. Toss the first four ingredients in a large salad bowl

2. The vinaigrette can be prepared one day ahead, just whisk together the Dijon mustard, vinegar, cranberry jam and orange juice until blended. Slowly drizzle in oil and mix until emulsified and add in the orange rind just before serving.
