Citrus Galore Winter Salad
If your body craves hydration during winter months, and you love citrus, this is your recipe!
One of the greatest things about winter, beside winter, is the produce that’s in season in parts of the country that we all benefit from.
We’re talking oranges, grapefruit, lemons, limes, kiwi, and the list goes on!
This winter salad pays homage to winter citrus like no other.
Then, when you combine juicy citrus with fennel, apple, arugula, pomegranate, walnuts, and beets, and then drizzle champagne vinaigrette over them…it is divine intervention!
I must warn though…you might devour an entire plate, by yourself.
You see this gorgeous plate of winter salad right here? I devoured it right after I took these pictures!
What makes this salad so devour-able is that it has ALL the flavors of sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and savory.
Combining produce, nuts, and vinaigrette makes this possible…doesn’t get any better than that in my book.
