  • 10 ounces mixed green lettuce or fresh spinach
  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
  • 4 clementines, peeled and separated into segments
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup pistachios, shelled and coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup crumbled goat cheese (or feta)


  • 1/2 cup good quality olive oil
  • 3-4 clementines (2 teaspoons zest and 4 tablespoons juice)
  • 1 large lemon (1/2 teaspoon zest and 2 tablespoons juice)
  • 2 and 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt


  1. In a large bowl, toss together the lettuce, strawberries, clementines, dried and cranberries.

  2. For the dressing: combine all of the ingredients together except for the oil in a food processor or blender. Blend until all ingredients are well incorporated and zest has been broken down. Slowly add in the oil in a steady stream and pulse until just combined and emulsified. Avoid blending the oil in for an extended period of time as it can make the oil taste metallic.

  3. Right before enjoying, add the dressing (add to taste -- you may not need/want it all), pistachios, and feta cheese. Do not add pistachios, cheese, or dressing to any salad you'll have leftover (it doesn't sit/store well together). Toss and enjoy immediately.
