Citrus Vinaigrette with Strawberry Orange Salad

I have been experimenting with different kinds of salads and dressings lately and this one was absolutely DIVINE!  I love the idea of making my own dressing and knowing exactly what is going into it.  I really never realized how easy and Delicious homemade dressing could be. 
Ingredients for salad:
  • 4 navel oranges, sliced
  • 10 strawberries, sliced
  • 2 packets truvia
  • 1 teaspoon dried mint
  • 1 bag spring mix salad
Ingredients for dressing:
  • 1/2 cup orange/strawberry syrup
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Directions:  In a large bowl add strawberries, oranges and mint.  Sprinkle with truvia and let sit for at least 2 hours.  Drain juice from bowl and pour into a small mixing bowl.  Add all remaining dressing ingredients and whisk together.  Pour dressing back into strawberries and oranges.  In a large salad bowl and spring mix and top with dressing and fruit.  Toss and serve!
