Coming back from vacation and rolling right into Memorial Day, I needed to stop the madness. We were in D.C. and oh my(!), does that city have the restaurants! We never had a bad meal and enjoyed the diversity in the cuisines. Add to that – the ribs and hot dogs of Memorial Day weekend – it was time to stop!
This is a recreation of a delicious salad I had in D.C. – I loved the salt of the pistachios combined with the sweetness of the oranges and beets. A sprinkle of blue cheese adds depth to the flavors.
I made a simple orange vinaigrette dressing to top everything off….
Tonight we’re having it with chicken…and hopefully, all is forgiven!
