In this blog, we'll not only guide you through the simple steps of creating this vibrant dish but also dive into the reasons why it's a culinary masterpiece with a touch of Greek inspiration.
Let's start by assembling the star-studded cast of ingredients for our citrus extravaganza:
- 1/2 cup baby spinach
- 1/2 cup arugula
- 1/2 cup Pilaros Lemon Olives
- 1/8 cup chopped walnuts

- 1 orange
- 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
- 3 tbsp Irini Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1/2 tsp Kalas Iodized Sea salt
- 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
The Magic Unfolds:
Begin by transforming the oranges into bite-sized wonders. Slice off the top and bottom, and then carefully cut off the peel and pith following the natural curve of the orange. With a delicate touch, slice between the membranes to release the luscious orange segments. Set aside these citrus gems; they're ready to shine in our salad.
In a grand bowl of culinary artistry, assemble the arugula, baby spinach, freshly cut orange segments, Pilaros Lemon Olives, chopped walnuts, and crumbled Nafsika’s Garden Feta style. Imagine the colours dancing together, ready to create a symphony of flavours.
The dressing is where the magic happens. Drizzle the white wine vinegar and Irini Extra Virgin Olive Oil over the salad, infusing it with a delicate balance of tangy and smooth. Add a sprinkle of Kalas Iodized Sea salt and a dash of Black Pepper, letting the flavours mingle in a joyful celebration of taste.
Now, embrace your inner chef and gently toss the salad, ensuring that every ingredient is bathed in the harmonious dressing. Each toss is a brushstroke on the canvas of flavour, transforming simple ingredients into a masterpiece.
As you serve this delightful salad, imagine the fresh sea breeze of the Mediterranean and the sun-kissed hills of Greece. Each bite is a journey, where the juicy orange segments meet the zesty Pilaros Lemon Olives, the creamy Nafsika’s Garden Feta style plays with the crunchy walnuts, and the dressing ties everything together in a harmonious embrace.
