Mandarin Beet Salad with Feta

This is one of my newest treats for dinner, and it's getting me in the mood for summer! I saw this suggestion in a photo at Trader Joe's and tweaked it a bit to get it to work at home. The dressing is very light but relatively low-calorie.

3 cups butter lettuce
4 sliced beets (cooked and peeled)
4 peeled mandarin oranges
3 tbsp feta cheese
handful of almod slivers

for the dressing:

1/2 cup olive oil
2 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp fresh ginger
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 tbsp agave (or honey)
pinch of salt

I put all the dressing ingredients in a measuring cup and then use my immersion blender to mix. Pouring everything into a traditional blender works fine, too. I try to keep this one light and lower in calories, so consequently it's a bit runny. I usually keep my dressings in the fridge for up to a week, but I find they taste much better if you blend them again right before eating.

To spice it up and add some color, top it with a little red onion. Refreshing!
