Named Tu B’Shevat Salad, for the Jewish holiday that translates to “New Year for Trees,” this salad features festive, seasonal fruits. Prep tip: It’s key to use a good-quality olive oil for the dressing because it’s an essential flavor element.

Directions
  1. Wash endive, watercress, and romaine thoroughly. Shake or spin dry, and tear leaves into bite-sized pieces. Place in a large salad bowl. Add orange slices (break into pieces for easier eating), avocado, dates, and cranberries, tossing to combine.
  2. To prepare dressing, combine vinegar, garlic, honey, and mustard, plus salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste. Whisk to blend. Add olive oil, whisking again to blend thoroughly. Drizzle about half over salad, tossing gently to distribute; add more to taste, if desired.
