Paneer and Orange Salad – Packing lunch to work

orange salad

This salad is an inspired one. A colleague had a box of paneer and orange for lunch and it tasted so good I wanted to make some for myself. Of course, I added more stuff to it to turn it into a proper salad. For the dressing I mixed together orange juice, honey, mustard and salt. It’s a very light and refreshing salad, perfect for days when you feel bloated or have eaten badly the previous day. I put this salad together in 10 mins with the dressing and packed it for lunch to work.
