Simple Summer Mandarin Orange Salad! #tropicalfruit

Now Mandarin Oranges are not my favorite but Mr.Pincakeplate loves them, but we all love #tropicalfruit!!  I love Feta Cheese and Balsamic Vinaigrette!  Hmmm Dole had a great idea!  

Lets marry these yummy flavors in a beautiful colorful salad!

I went to my local Safeway to shop for my ingredients!  I love my Safeway!  It is always clean and not very crowded!!  I like that!  To see more of my shopping trip click HERE!

They even have a new smart phone app! Yes I used it for this shopping trip!  I love technology!

It loads any coupons right onto your card!

Safeway’s produce section is my favorite!  It is always clean and the selection is amazing! And there is an abundance of #tropicalfruit in their produce section!

Back to the Dole Mandarin oranges!  Every Sunday night we have my MIL over for dinner and this Sunday was no exception! With Mr. Pinkcakeplate out-of-town it was a perfect time to try a new recipe!  My sweet MIL will eat just about anything she doesn’t have to prepare herself!!LOL!

So Simple Summer Dole Mandarin Orange Salad it is!!

Here are your ingredients!  I am not going to give you a step by step because I think it is pretty self explanatory!!

I washed and prepared the onion and the olives and tossed them in the greens!   I love that you can get the Dole Mandarin Oranges in this great Plastic Jar!  Makes for easy storage of leftovers!

I strained the Dole Mandarin oranges in my colander to remove the excess juice and then I just threw them on top!  I love all the beautiful colors! 

With a splash of Balsamic vinaigrette and the most delicious salty Feta Cheese we had a beautiful summer salad!

I paired this with my favorite cut of beef a lovely London Broil grilled to perfection and some grilled garlic bread!  Oh by the way the London Broil was on sale at Safeway for less than ground beef!!!  I love that!
