A Winter Salad

Oh dear, poor Onions and Paper - I've been neglecting you recently! I've been away to visit my Mum again, and the rest of the time I've been so busy my craft goodies are lying untouched on the table. In fact a half-made card intended for a  Less is More challenge two weeks ago is still glaring reproachfully up at me.

However we still have to eat, and one day this week I put together odds and ends left over in the fridge to make this colourful and tasty salad. The soft, sweet lettuces of summer are gone from the garden (and veg box) now, and have been replaced by the more bitter salads of winter - endives and chicories. In thefridge this week there were the remains of a radicchio  and a couple of chicons of chicory. On their own, that combination makes for a rather bitter salad,  but with a couple of sliced oranges for  sweetness and some walnuts for a warming crunch, the salad sprang to life.
