You know the drill, but just in case you are new around here: You are at home and hungry for food. You have to cook up something scrumptious for you and your boyfriend/ girlfriend/ spouse/ child/ friend, but the ingredients you have on hand are limited.
You have walnuts, fresh oranges, and sugar. Using these ingredients, along with whatever staples you currently have in your cupboard and refrigerator, what would you make?
To see what I would make,
- I have a bunch of arugula that needs to be used up, so I would make a salad. First I would segment the oranges and catch the juice in a large bowl.
- To the bowl I would add salt, pepper, a little grated onion, balsamic vinegar, dry mustard, and the sugar. I would whisk all of this together and slowly stream in olive oil to make a vinaigrette.
- Next I would add the arugula to the bowl and toss with the dressing.
- Finally, I would add the orange segments, the walnuts, and a little bit of blue cheese for a delicious and simple salad.
