ICEBERG LETTUCE CHOPPED SALAD WITH ORANGE MARMALADE DRESSING

Everyone needs a go-to salad that can be made quickly with ingredients that most of us have on hand. This recipe is definitely one of those! I always have iceberg lettuce and a package of pre-cut coleslaw on hand, so I found myself making quite a lot of iceberg lettuce salads. Orange marmalade is another item that I usually have on hand; it's not only good on toast but can be used for many other sweet or savoury dishes. This is a terrific simple dressing that can even be used as a quick chicken breast marinade if you wish. Enjoy!

Makes about 3/4 cup of dressing
Serves about 4 people

Ingredients for salad:

  • iceberg lettuce, chopped (about half a head of lettuce)
  • radishes, sliced thin
  • handful of chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • package of pre-cut coleslaw (about half a package)
  • shredded carrots

Ingredients for the dressing:

  • 1-1/2 tbsp orange marmalade
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • coarse salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Take a large salad bowl, and mix all of the salad ingredients together using tongs. Put the bowl into the fridge until ready to serve. In a small bowl, add in all of the dressing ingredients except for the extra virgin olive oil. Whisk the ingredients together and then slowly drizzle in the olive oil until the dressing comes together. Make sure to toss the salad with the dressing the last minute before serving.
