  1. With a zester, remove 2 Tbsp. of long strands from the orange. Set aside.

Combine the juice with the vinegars, honey, spice blend and pesto. Mix well. Adjust salt and pepper. Add in the orange zest to the bowl along with the remaining ingredients, except the lettuce. Mix well. Cover and refrigeratetill serving time (from 30 min to 8 hrs). Serve the salad on a bed of lettuce.
  2. VARIATION:* The spice blend and vinegar will stain the orange. For a brighter presentation, reserve a few slices of orange and add in decoratively to the salad when served.* Get another taste treat by adding minced raw garlic to the dressing.

  4. NOTES : For the freshest flavor, use a homemade pesto of mixed herbs and a variety of nuts. Try half cilantro and basil with toasted walnut and romano, for example. A little delivers a lot of flavor. Warmed corn tortillas make a great accompaniment. Or possibly share a quesadilla: low-carb tortillas, corn kernels, canned diced jalapeno chiles, chili pwdr, and reduce fat cheese.
