Scallop & Orange Salad


Scallop & Orange Salad

I love seafood scallops...such a wonderful taste and texture.  Add a few ingredients to them and you have a wonderful salad. This one looks like a real winner for a light summer dinner.

I just posted another salad that I really love. It's a "Grilled Romaine with blue cheese and hot bacon vinaigrette. I think if you added the scallops to this salad it would be a wonderful add on.
Here's the link to the "Grilled Romaine salad"... If you like the Scallop and Orange Salad, you will love the grilled romaine one too!
