Winter Citrus Salad Recipe

Winter Citrus Salad Recipe

This delicious salad is packed with Vitamin C, which may help fight off infections during these cold winter months!

Makes 4 servings

1 navel orange, segmented
1 pink grapefruit, segmented
1 white grapefruit, segmented
1 small head bibb lettuce, chopped
2 endives, chopped
1 small head raddichio, chopped
1 ripe avocado, sliced
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
¼ tsp salt
¼ cup toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped
pepper to taste


To segment the orange and grapefruits, run a sharp knife just under the peel so that the peel and white pith is removed. Then slice along either side of the citrus membrane resulting in a cleaned citrus segment.

Put segments of the orange and grapefruit in a strainer over a bowl (about ¼ to ½ cup). The strained citrus juice will be used in the vinaigrette.

Wash and dry the lettuce, endive and radicchio leaves and place them into a large bowl.

Slice the avocado and add it to the lettuces along with the remaining citrus segments.

Add the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste to ¼ cup reserved citrus juice and whisk well.

Pour vinaigrette over lettuce, citrus and avocado and toss well.

Garnish with toasted pepitas and chives.
