To make the vinaigrette, first segment the orange. Once done, squeeze the excess juice into a bowl.
Heat a small frying pan over medium-high heat and add the juice. Let the juice simmer and reduce until a syrup-like consistency is reached. Transfer to a bowl and let cool slightly. Then add the vinegar, salt, pepper and olive oil. Whisk and then set aside while you prepare the greens.
Before you assemble the salad make sure the greens are washed, dried and torn into bite-size pieces.
Make sure the vinaigrette is well mixed before drizzling a bit at a time over the greens. Gently toss to make sure everything is lightly coated. To finish, add the orange segments, toss again and serve.
This simple, but flavorful, salad makes a healthy and refreshing side. For a complete and satisfying meal, try paring it with a delicious grilled steak or pan-fried chicken breast. For a bit of crunch, try adding 1 to 2 tbsp of slivered almonds.
