For The Vinaigrette:

  • 1 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice fresh
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon mustard mild
  • salt and pepper
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

For The Salad:

  • 6 cups chopped Batavia lettuce (curly leafed)
  • 1 large orange Cara Cara or Valencia variety
  • 1 medium-sized Golden Delicious apple
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice fresh
  • 50 grams (about 3,t tablespoons) walnuts
  • 20 grams (about 2 tablespoons) sesame seeds


To Make The Vinaigrette:

  • Add all of the ingredients for the vinaigrette to a small mixing bowl and stir with a whisk to combine. Then slowly add the olive oil while stirring vigorously with the whisk.

To Make The Salad:

  • Peel and core the apple. Then slice thinly and add to a small bowl or large cup and fill with water. Add the fresh lemon juice and set it aside. This way the apple won't darken in color.
  • Remove the skin of the orange, cut it in half, and then into thin slices.
  • OPTIONAL: Lightly toast the sesame seeds in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Shake pan often as sesame seeds can get burned in mere seconds. You can skip this and use the sesame seeds raw.
  • Add the lettuce in a mixing bowl, the apple slices, the orange slices, the walnuts, sesame seeds, and pour the vinaigrette all over on top. Mix the salad gently and you are ready to serve!
