mixed greens with orange juice vinaigrette

This salad was light and refreshing.  I've had great luck with succulent oranges lately which made the salad more of a dessert than anything else.  Perfect for the nice spring-like weather we're having this week.

mixed greens with orange juice vinaigrette (Taste of Home, Feb/Mar 2012)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
dash salt
dash pepper
1 package (5 ounces) spring mix salad greens
chunks of fresh oranges (my addition to the salad)

In a small bowl, whisk the first six ingredients.  Place salad greens in a large bowl.  Drizzle with vinaigrette; toss to coat.  Add chunks of fresh oranges.
