Almond Orange Frisée Salad

No ratings yet

This salad is not only beautiful and refreshing, but it also pairs well with almost any dinner menu.

Every heavy entrée needs something light and refreshing to balance out the richness of sodium, carbs, and fats. Our Almond Orange Frisée Salad is a perfect way to lighten any calorie-laden meal. Almonds and red onions add a welcome crunch, while oranges and honey bring a subtle sweetness. If you like a little extra sweetness and crunch, you can even candy your almonds (as with our Candied Pecans recipe)! The bitterness from the frisée balances out the sweet flavors in the salad, so it’s not too overwhelming. Plus, it’s super healthy!

This frisée salad is not only beautiful and refreshing, but it also pairs well with almost any dinner menu. If you have access to them, blood oranges would be a great substitution for regular oranges and make for a very striking presentation.
