Winter Citrus Salad
Posted by Olivia on Tue, January 25, 2011
It may be cold and snowy outside, but that doesn’t mean you have to eat hot porridge and stew 7 days a week.
A great way to sneak sunshine into the wintry days is by enjoying fresh citrus like oranges and clementines. They’re available year-round and actually boost your immunity during the flu season by pumping out strong doses of vitamin C and phytochemicals. Eating citrus in January perks up your drab winter plate and adds a bit of otherwise lacking color to the season.
Our Winter Citrus Salad is a palette of color on your plate, ripe with pinks, purples, and greens. Finished off with an ever-fresh dressing of our Blood Orange Olive Oil and White Balsamic Vinegar, it’s a clean and crisp dish capable of perking up any gray winter day.
1 head green & purple bib lettuce, torn
2 oranges, peeled, cut into rounds
1 avocado, pitted, sliced
½ red onion, sliced into very thin round rings
½ cup fresh cilantro leaves, torn
¼ cup sliced pitted green and black olives
2 tablespoons Blood Orange Olive Oil
1 tablespoon White Balsamic Vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon honey
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- Combine lettuce, oranges, avocado, onion, cilantro, and olives in a medium bowl; gently mix.
- Whisk dressing ingredients together in a small bowl. Pour over salad and toss gently. Serve immediately.
Makes 4 servings.
