Oregano's: Sensational Summer Sides! 

Memorial Day and summer grilling season have somehow snuck up on us again - While most people will be outdoors barbecuing burgers, brats and hot dogs for the next few months, the real star of the show should be the sensational summer side dishes! 

On that note, it's time to ditch heavy potato and macaroni salads for something lighter, healthier, more flavorful and colorful. 

Oregano's Pizza Bistro recently created a mouthwatering dish called the Power Greens Salad and it is outstanding. Whether viewers want to order it from "Carb-side pickup" or emulate the dish from home; they will love it. 

The salad begins with black organic Kale (but any kale will do) then adds layers of diced red apples, dried cranberries, sliced almonds, hot chopped bacon, and raw chopped broccoli on top, before tossing it all around in a refreshingly delicious poppy seed dressing. 

Oregano's Power Greens Salad Recipe:

  • 2 cups of kale 
  • 1/2 cup of hot bacon 
  • Half of a red diced apple (medium size)
  • 3 Tbl. dried cranberries 
  • 1/2 Cup of raw chopped broccoli 
  • 1 Tbl. Toasted Almonds
  • Garnish:
  • 1 Tbl. Toasted Almonds
  • 1/2 cup of Poppy seed dressing 

1. Dry sauté bacon for approximately 2 minutes, until bacon begins to sweat.
2. Ladle dressing into mixing bowl first, then add kale, cooked bacon, apple, cranberries, broccoli, and almonds into mixing bowl. Mix well.
3. Transfer to a bowl.
4. Garnish with Toasted Almonds.

Oregano's poppy seed dressing recipe:

  •     1/3 cup sugar
  •     5 tablespoons cider vinegar
  •     2-1/2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  •     1-1/2 teaspoons grated onion
  •     1 teaspoon ground mustard
  •     1/2 teaspoon salt
  •     1 cup vegetable oil

1.    In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Slowly whisk in oil. Cover and refrigerate.
