Our mandarin oranges salad

What to do with the leftover Mandarin oranges from Chinese New Year? Other than eating and juicing, you could make salad from them, like I do.

This salad is refreshing and appetizing. You would love it, like how hubby and I do.  The acidity from the salad dressing give the salad a distinctive taste to the sweet oranges and oniony onion.

This salad is healthy as I used healthy and organic ingredients including the bacon bits. Hormel brand of 50% less fat bacon pieces is my choice here.

2 Mandarin oranges (lokam), peeled
1/2 big onion, diced
Handful of roasted almonds
1 tbsp bacon bits

Salad dressing
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp Malt Vinegar
1 tbsp raw honey
1/4 tsp salt

1. Arrange the salad in a salad plate.
2. Mix the salad dressing in a bowl.
3. Pour the dressing onto the salad and toss and mix well. 

This salad nice to be taken with a cup of black tea! Now you have all the 4 tastes in one serving. A real taste teaser.


  1. No leftover mandarin oranges for me this year coz I did not have any, previous years still got people give us, this year dont have, huhuhu..

  2. Lokam and raw onions? Hhhmmm, I wonder how that combination would taste like.

  3. All gone, mine.

    Amazing!!!! So so many boxes at the shops, all stacked up so high...not a single one left.

    I went looking, hoping for some leftovers as the ones I had left in the house, all wrinkled, turned out to be so juicy and so sweet - not like that when we first bought them so I was hoping I could have some more... :(

  4. no more mandarin oranges to make salad liao :(

  5. I still have some mandarin oranges left...

  6. This year I didn't buy any mandarin oranges, so no salad for me.

  7. wah ...that's interesting. Usually I just peel off the mandarin skin and eat like that. Didn't thought of salad.

  8. I have never tried using mandarin oranges for salad

  9. This must be refreshing! I will try it one day. Have always wanted to go for a orange salad but never got round to it! ^.^
