On the table in five to ten minutes and deliciously healthy. Orly says that it was inspired by a recipe created by the President of Israel's chef.


2 oranges

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

1/4 cup roughly chopped walnuts

2-3 cups lettuce leaves

1/2 cup arugula

2 Tbs. olive oil

2 Tbs. lemon juice

Pinch of salt

Dash of honey or silan (optional)


Peel the oranges and trim away any remaining white pith. Break apart into segments.

Put the orange segments, pomegranate seeds, walnuts, lettuce, and arugula into a salad bowl and toss with olive oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Add a drizzle of honey or silan if you prefer a sweeter dressing.
