Citrus Salad recipe


Citrus Salad is as easy as it is beautiful. Once you have filled your favorite bowl with crisp spring mix, add the citrus, avocado and thinly sliced red onion. Sprinkle the goat cheese and nuts on top and you have yourself a work of art! For the dressing, combine all ingredients in a food processor or mix by hand, and drizzle desired amount over the top. The world always feels a little drab to me in the middle of winter, and this salad can brighten up any meal to make those feelings go away. Serve alongside a light, creamy pasta dish or your favorite steak or pork chop.
