Made with a spunky citrus dressing and strips of mild Napa cabbage, sweet spinach and bitter radicchio, this is a simple salad thatís striking to the eye and palate. The recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups dressing; see Serving Suggestions below for additional ways to use it.


  • 23 cup organic orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon (or lime juice)
  • 2 teaspoons minced, pressed to a paste with a fork garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Napa cabbage, thinly sliced
  • radicchio, thinly sliced (also known as red chicory)
  • spinach, thinly sliced


Combine orange juice, lemon or lime juice, garlic, cumin, and oregano. Use a fork to whisk in olive oil a little a time. Season generously with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature 1 or more hours to develop flavor.

Mix two parts Napa cabbage with one part each radicchio and spinach. Toss with just enough dressing to coat the leaves without soaking them.

Serving Suggestions

The dressing in this recipe is very versatile: use it as a sauce for steamed green beans or broccoli florets, a dressing for tossed green salads, or a marinade for grilled fish or chicken.
