“Adding canned beans is a quick, convenient way to make a salad into a meal—they boost the protein to make the salad more satisfying. This recipe calls for kidney beans, but other canned beans like cannellinis or black beans would also work nicely. ”


    • Orange-Oregano Dressing
    • ½ teaspoon orange zest
    • ½ cup orange juice, preferably freshly squeezed
    • ¼ cup cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano or ¾ teaspoon dried
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • Salad
    • 1 orange
    • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
    • 1 cup sliced radishes
    • 1 cup canned kidney beans, rinsed
    • 1 scallion, sliced
    • ¼ cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
    • ¼ cup Orange-Oregano Dressing


  • 1 To prepare dressing: Place orange zest, orange juice, vinegar, oil, oregano, mustard, salt and pepper in a jar. Cover and shake to combine.
  • 2 To prepare salad: Slice both ends off orange. With a sharp knife, remove the peel and white pith; discard. Working over a large bowl, cut the segments from their surrounding membrane. Squeeze the juice into the bowl before discarding the membrane, if desired. Add lettuce, radishes, beans, scallion, feta and dressing; toss to coat. (Refrigerate the extra dressing for up to 1 week.)
  • Make Ahead Tip: The recipe makes 1 cup dressing (Step 1); cover and refrigerate extra dressing for up to 1 week.
