MDF's Clementine Splash / Marinade

Our MDF Clementine Splash packs a real punch and dresses this salad with tons of citrusy flavor. The dressing is very versatile and may also be used as a concentrated marinade for chicken or fish, which also make great toppings for the Citrus-Splashed Greens and Roots (*see recipe).
