One of our recent posts featured a Winter Salad that was so delicious that it inspired us to make a different version to highlight citrus fruits even more. It’s been raining quite a bit here in So Cal, which is great to get us out of the drought, but it’s been a bit gloomier than we’re used to. This salad and it’s bright colors are so gorgeous and uplifting that we feel it just might put an end to any winter blues from the dreary weather.
Citrus is in the height of its season right now and you can find such sweet tasting varieties of grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, and pomelos. The idea is to use any combination of any citrus fruit and adding the honey helps to bring out the tartness of the citrus. To make this salad Vegan, we used Bee Free Honee for the dressing. It’s so delicious and made from Apples!
Winter Citrus Salad
1 blood orange
Slivered raw almonds
Drizzled Bee Free Honee
A sprinkle of salt
1/3 diced avocado
- Peel all the fruits and remove as much of the pith as possible with a sharp paring knife. The easiest way to do this is to cut off both ends of the round fruit so you have a flat surface to stand your fruit upright. Then cut as close to the pulp as possible.
- Using a serrated knife, slice the fruits into disks.
- Arrange the slices on a plate – mix up the different colors for variety!
- Add avocado on top.
- Sprinkle with the almonds, drizzle the honee (or honey) and lastly add the salt.
