Winter Greens Salad with Cara Cara Oranges, Almonds & House Citronette
A light, bright, and refreshing addition to any brunch lineup.
4 large handfuls of salad greens, such as mix of this week’s Lacinato kale and red-veined sorrel greens, washed and torn or chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 cup coarsely-chopped radicchio
2 Cara Cara oranges, sliced into segments
⅓ cup goat cheese, crumbled
3 tablespoons sliced almonds
¼ cup pomegranate arils
Fresh ground pepper
1. In a small skillet over medium heat, toast the almonds for a few minutes, stirring frequently so they don’t burn. Once the almonds are fragrant and starting to turn golden, remove from heat.
2. In a large serving bowl, combine the greens, radicchio, segmented blood oranges, goat cheese, pomegranate arils and warm almonds.
3. Just before serving, drizzle the salad with about ½ cup of the citronette, tossing lightly to combine. Add more dressing as desired, and season generously with fresh ground pepper.
