An orange a day can reduce age-related vision loss by 36%.  That’s because the fruit’s ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and beta-carotene (vitamin A) prevent free radical damage.  Here’s a yummy way to enjoy it.

Combine 3 cups mixed green, 6 clementines, peeled and segmented; 1/2 cup walnuts (or peanuts) and 1/2 cup water chestnuts.  In separate bowl, mix 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1/4 cup lemon or orange juice and 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard.  Toss and serve.
