Caribbean Salad with Sweet Orange Vinaigrette


***Check out my new blog to see better pics of this amazing salad! http://www.kayescupboard.com/caribbean-salad/

I really love salads, but it's hard to find many that are very different. This one is fantastic- oranges, peppers, cilantro, and the almost always necessary chicken, plus a light, citrus-y vinaigrette; you're sure to love it!

1 large bunch Romaine lettuce (or two pre-bagged)
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, grilled
8 oz mandarin oranges, drained
1 red bell pepper, sliced or diced
4-5 green onions, sliced
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
6-8 tablespoons dried cherries or cranberries
(optional) black or regular sesame seeds
(optional) fresh pineapple, diced

Vinaigrette
1/4 cup orange juice (about 1/2 of a large naval orange, if fresh-squeezed)
1 1/2 Tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon canola oil
white sugar to taste, up to 2 Tablespoons

Yield: 6 main dish salads or 10-12 side salads.
