Fast & Easy Dinner: Orange Chicken Salad With Feta

Fast & Easy Dinner: Orange Chicken Salad With Feta

I always keep a couple of frozen juice concentrates in my freezer. Besides coming in handy for last-minute cocktails, they also make a wonderful addition to vinaigrettes. A couple tablespoons of orange juice concentrate flavors this scrumptious dinner salad. Packed with colorful veggies — cherry tomatoes, carrots, bell peppers — and sweet mandarin oranges, this salad is balanced in texture and taste. A heavy sprinkling of salty feta and toasted almonds finishes off the dish.

I agree. I always associate feta with greek and this is definitely not a greek salad. Maybe I just need to get out of my own way. I sometimes substitute ricotta salata for feta.

Sounds sooo yummy! aimeeb - you could probably use goat cheese or aged Gouda like Manukia suggeested.

Sounds delicious! I'll give it a try! @ #1: you could substitute other shredded cheeses for feta, e.g. Cheddar, Emmental, aged Gouda.
