mediocre salad

This salad is a composite of random things I had in the refrigerator. Organic mixed greens. Strawberries (sliced). Chicken scraps (sauteed with salt and pepper in a little canola oil).

The vinaigrette is made from reduced orange juice I had leftover that I didn't feel like drinking. I mixed it with a small amount of honey and mustard (to emulsify), along with a little walnut oil. Read a little about about emulsions.

Remember to season your salad with a little salt and/or pepper. After all, the word salad does come from the Latin word salata, which means "salted".
