Butter Lettuce with Oranges and Mozza Salad
- 1 head butter lettuce
- 1 orange
- 1 tbsp thin slices red onion
- 8 slices low-fat mozza
- fresh ground black pepper
Mint Buttermilk Dressing
- approximately 20 large, mint leaves
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise (low fat will do)
- 1/3 cup buttermilk
- 1 tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
Slice cheese into pieces 1/8 – 1/4 inch thick. Cut into squares.
Peel orange with a larger knife, taking a generous thickness that includes all the white pith. (I do it while holding the orange in my hand, over the salad bowl to collect the juice, but you can also do it on a cutting board.) Now holding the peeled orange in your hand, gently cut fruit sections out from the membranes with a sharp knife.
Slice onions and combine with washed and dried lettuce, oranges, croutons and cheese.
Chop mint finely in food processor or with a knife. Mix mayonnaise, buttermilk and orange juice into mint.
Add a pinch of salt.
Toss salad with dressing.
