The President’s Salad

The inspiration for this salad came from a recipe in the newspaper by the Israeli president’s chef. Lettuce, oranges, and pomegranates are a classic Mediterranean combination and I was drawn to these ingredients. It would be perfect for Tu Bishvat.


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Ready Time : 10 min


4-6 Servings


  • 2 oranges
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped walnuts
  • 2-3 cups lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 cup arugula
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • Dash of honey or silan (optional)


  1. Peel the oranges and trim away any remaining white pith. Break apart into segments.
  2. Put the orange segments, pomegranate seeds, walnuts, lettuce, and arugula into a salad bowl and toss with olive oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt. Add a drizzle of honey or silan if you prefer a sweeter dressing.
