Winter Citrus Salads

Winter may not seem like the ideal time to experiment with salads, but with all the different varieties of citrus fruit that are in season currently, its a great time get ready to peel! Not to mention, a little bit of citrus may be just what you need to help get over the winter blues.

My new favorite citrus inspired salad is easy to make, and super flavorful! I use blood oranges, pink grapefruit, cucumber, avocado and edamame in my Winter Citrus Edamame Salad.

A great flavor pairing is fennel and citrus, and if that gets you excited, try this Winter Citrus Salad featuring fennel, citrus, goat cheese and olives.

Looking for a salad that can serve as more of a meal? Try this Winter Chicken Salad with Citrus and Celery. (Leave off the cheese!)

I love this lettuce-free version of a Winter Citrus Salad from the Culinary Enthusiast which uses not only grapefruit, blood oranges and clementines, but also pomegranate seeds!

And if you’re looking to drink your citrus, not eat it, well forget the salad – try this Blood Orange Margarita, which is one of my favorite combinations of flavors.
