Fabulous Feta Salad

Pin It
Posted by Lori: 

This is the third and final new salad I made for last week's school event. This one was delicious, and for sure it will become one of my favorite recipes when needing to take a salad for luncheons or events. I can eat a whole can of Mandarin oranges, anyway, so putting them in a salad makes it that much better, in my opinion!

5 ounce package spring-blend salad mix
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
6 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
11 ounce can mandarin oranges, drained and halved
Grated Parmesan cheese to taste
Poppy Seed Dressing  (recipe below)

 Divide salad mix equally among four serving plates; top each with equal servings of pecans, feta cheese, bacon and mandarin oranges. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese; drizzle with Poppy Seed Dressing. Serve immediately. Serves 4. 

***I made the salad in a large bowl, adding the dressing right before serving.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon poppy seed

Whisk together mayonnaise and sugar; whisk in vinegar and remaining ingredients. Add to salad.
