Winter Citrus Salad – Gluten-free w/ Vegan Option

Winter Citrus Salad - Gluten-free w/ Vegan Option

I have to admit, I was never really one of those people that freaked out about citrus, I have never cared much about orange juice or sitting down to eat an entire grapefruit. That was until we moved out here to Southern California. The citrus here is just amazing. The oranges, especially, are just incredible, unlike any I have ever tasted before. The fact that we have an orange tree here in our yard is just icing on the cake. Plus we’ve been getting adorable Satsuma tangerines in our CSA box each week.

I have mostly been eating the oranges and tangerines as is, but they have also been amazing freshly juiced. I decided that I had to venture out and get creative with all of this delicious citrus. I wanted to do something different, something somewhat savory.

This salad is a perfect, tasty, bright spot in the cool, darkness of winter. Feel free to use whatever citrus you have available. Extra oranges if you don’t love grapefruit or skip the tangerines and add more of something else, if you’d like.

This salad is gorgeous! I’ve been a huge citrus kick lately, especially with grapefruits.

Thanks so much Kelli. I cannot believe what I have been missing out on with grapefruits, I kinda hated them until I moved to California 😉

This looks so divine, I can’t wait to try it. Summer is here and our citrus is somewhat dry and unappealing at the moment but I really look forward to it cooling down and trying this salad
