Pork, Peasant Bread, & A Refreshing Salad


We had Jill's Raspberry-Glazed Pork Tenderloin for dinner last night, along with our favorite bread from the Ivory Cookbook, French Peasant Bread. I tried out a new salad, and topped it all off with a delicious blueberry crumble (see next post).




Cynthia’s Salad with Oranges & Scallions

1 TB. Unsalted butter
1/2 cup Slivered almonds
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Seasoned salt
1 head Romaine lettuce
1 can Mandarin oranges, drained (15 oz.)
1 bunch Scallions, sliced
2 cloves Garlic, pressed
1/4 cup Fresh lemon juice
3 TB. Fresh orange juice
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/8tsp. Cayenne pepper
1/2 cup Olive oil
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1 TB. Grated orange zest
Salt and pepper

1. Warm the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add almonds and sauté until they start to brown, 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in salt and seasoned salt. Drain on paper towels.

2. In a food processor, combine garlic, lemon juice, orange juice, mustard, and cayenne. With machine running, add olive oil and vegetable oil slowly in a thin stream until incorporated. Pour dressing into bowl and stir in orange zest. Add salt and pepper to taste.

3. In large serving bowl, combine lettuce, oranges, scallions, and almonds. Just before serving, toss with dressing.

*I really liked this salad. The dressing was very refreshing. Hubby & kids weren't so fond of it for some reason, but oh well. More for me! I didn't have almonds, so I used walnuts and added a few tsp. brown sugar as they were browning. I also used sliced red onion instead of scallions (didn't have those, either!).
