Happy Monday Everybody and I’m here to share this gorgeous ‘3 Minutes Mediterranean Orange Salad (Glutenfree)’ recipe with you’ll as it’s been so hot since past two days that I can totally feel Spring knocking on our doors.  As you might have seen my last few posts have been all about ‘Indian desserts’ or some entree and could you believe that I’ve never posted a single salad recipe till date !!! I mean I couldn’t believe it as I eat so much salad on a regular basis. Hence, I decided to start with one of my most favorite salad recipe that seriously is so easy to make that it’s really tough to get it wrong 😉 quick-orange-salad-recipeSo, what do you do when you literally want to eat healthy, delicious and a quick dish? You make this ‘3 Minutes Mediterranean Orange Salad (Glutenfree)’ and just let all these cravings do the talking. It’s a great mix of sweet + a little bit of savory from the feta cheese. I still remember the first time I had a similar salad in some restaurant in Los Angles, it just blew my mind. It was so fresh and light, however, the only thing I wanted to change then was the combination of greens added to the salad – it was just way too much and overpowering the entire deliciousness. So, I decided to make my light version with bare minimum ingredients and also ingredients that actually enhance each other. easy-salad-recipeNow, to keep it as close to Mediterranean flavors, I’ve used the basic Mediterranean ingredients like olive oil, walnuts, some sort of citrus base, mint, cheese and honey. If you’re vegan or avoiding cheese, you can totally skip that ingredient. And you need to trust me, when you combine all these ingredients together, the flavor is simply outstanding. quick-glutenfree-salad-recipeThe only seasoning that I’ve added is salt and pepper and you’re good to go. This salad is good for 2 people and can be made within 3 minutes – Seriously can you think of something as delicious and flavorful in that time? So, get the ingredients, make the light vinegarette, assemble the salad and share it with someone you love or simply eat it all on your own. The only thing I would suggest is that this salad cannot be made too much ahead of time as the sliced oranges start becoming mushy but you can definitely make the vinaigrette a night before and keep in fridge. easy-mediterranean-orange-salad-recipe

Welcome spring with this salad or just try it for a quick pick me up nosh.Until Next Time-easycookingwithmolly

    It's been shockingly hot here in Yorkshire the past couple of days (to the extent I was wondering this morning if we've skipped Spring and gone straight to Summer this year lol). This salad would be absolutely perfect to cool and refresh me - thanks for sharing the recipe (and beautiful photos :D)

    I love oranges I actually live in Florida and I can get pretty good citrus in my area. Great fresh idea to pair with almost anything.

    I love how vibrant that orange looks. I've only eaten oranges on their own or in a veggies salad - never with feta cheese and stuff. How cool. Love it Molly. Can't wait to try

    What a beautiful salad!! And to think it is so easy. I believe the orange slices are what is so striking. Nothing detracts from their beauty. I'll be making this soon.

    Girl, you had me at 'orange'!! What a lovely recipe. Mint is one of my favorite flavors yet I often don't know what to do with it or how to add it into a recipe.. adding it to the orange and the creamy feta and the little walnut crunchies.. this is the perfect springtime refresher!!
