Green leaf salad with lime and macadamia dressing

Summer is the time for fresh, healthy salads which always go well with cold meats, a bbq or seafood. This salad uses macadamia oil which is known to be one of the healthiest edible oils, and the zesty lime flavours with just a hint of sweetness will leave you wanting more. Plus, it is so simple and quick to make. This recipe serves 8 as a side dish. Try this with the Tallis Dookie Hills Viognier 2007.
