Description

This Summer Citrus Salad is delicious, tangy, and colorful. It’s loaded with fresh fruit including oranges and grapefruit tossed in a citrus dressing.


Ingredients

  • 3 cups mixed greens
  • 2 navel oranges, peeled and sliced into ¼-inch thick slices, pop out the seeds
  • 1 large grapefruit, peeled and sliced or segmented
  • 1 large avocado, sliced
  • ½ cup blackberries
  • ¼ cup red onions, sliced

For the dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper (or more to taste)

Instructions

  1. Line a large serving bowl with the salad greens. Arrange the oranges, grapefruit, avocado, blackberries, and red onion on top and around the lettuce. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the orange juice, lemon juice, olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad or serve on the side.

Notes

Make ahead instructions: To make this orange salad ahead of time, I would suggest prepping the ingredients (except the avocado), making the dressing, and storing the two in separate airtight containers. When ready to serve, cut up the avocado, assemble the salad, and pour the dressing on top.

How to store: Summer citrus salad is best eaten fresh since the dressing will start to soften the greens. If you do have leftovers, store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 1-2 days.
