Winter Salad with Poppy Seed Vinaigrette

We've had some beautiful January days lately. Maybe that's what inspired me to put a little sunshine in my salad! I've also been feeling a little uncreative with my main meals, so an interesting salad felt like the right place to invest some imaginative thought. Hope you enjoy... and I hope you're enjoying these winter sunny days!

Recipe:
1/2 head ice berg lettuce
1/2 head red leaf lettuce
1 bulb fennel, sliced thinly
2 oranges, pealed and sliced thin
1/4 C cranberries

Vinaigrette:
4 T olive oil
1 T coconut vinegar
1 T orange juice
1 T honey
2 tsp. poppy seeds
pinch sea salt
dash black pepper

Wash and tear lettuce pieces. Top with sliced fennel and orange slices. Sprinkle with the dried cranberries. Combine vinaigrette ingredients and mix together vigorously. Pour over salad and serve! It's crisp, fresh and fun. A great compliment to just about any meal! :-)
