Winter Citrus Salad
A fresh and healthy salad made with oranges and grapefruit slices, all mixed in a light citrus dressing.
Servings: 2 people
- 2 Tb. Fresh orange juice
- 1 tsp. Fresh lemon juice
- 2 tsp. Orange zest
- 2-3 Tb. Honey
- 1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
- 2 Tb. Olive oil
- 4 medium Oranges/Grapefruits (use a mix of what's available)
- 2-3 cups Mixed baby greens/lettuces
- 10-12 Fresh basil leaves
- 2 Tb. Freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 2-3 Tb. Salted pepitas/sunflower seeds/nuts
- 2-3 thin slices Red (or Vidalia) onion (optional)
Combine all ingredients for dressing in a small bowl or lidded jar; whisk (or shake) to combine, then set aside until ready to use.
Remove the ends of each orange/grapefruit, then place on a cutting board, flat side down. Using a sharp knife, slice downward on each orange/grapefruit to remove the peels until all the white pith parts are gone. Slice the fruit and remove ALL seeds before placing the slices in a mixing bowl.
To the mixing bowl, add greens, basil leaves, onion (if using) and some dressing (to taste). Toss lightly then transfer to serving plates/bowls. Sprinkle with pepitas and freshly grated cheese, and serve!
