Citrus Romaine Salad With Strawberries

The combination of fresh fruit and romaine with a citrusy dressing always appeals to my tastebuds.  This is a Weight Watcher’s salad with a serving size of 1 cup for 1 point.  Just enough to go along with a main entree.

Citrus Romaine Salad With Strawberries

  • 2 naval oranges  (you could also add some orange zest before you peel them)
  • 1 tbsp. sherry vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1-1/2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 cups romaine lettuce, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, sliced

Peel and section oranges over a small bowl, reserving 2 tbsp. juice.  Combine reserved 2 tbsp. juice, vinegar, and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well.  For a little more orange flavor add some orange zest to taste.

Combine orange sections, lettuce, strawberries and onion in a large bowl; toss gently.  Pour dressing over salad; toss gently to coat.

Serves 7:  Serving size is 1 cup and 1 point

A light and refreshing salad…
