Savor the Citrus

Our upcoming Daylight Savings holiday (only nine days away!) has instilled a sense of anxious excitement for the arrival of extended sunshine and outdoor splendor. I'm anticipating balcony sunsets with wine in hand, outdoor dinners in the side courtyard, and post-work walks along the River Bluff.

Until Spring officially arrives, though, I'm savoring winter citrus for breakfast bruléed, for dinner on salad, and for dessert on gelato. This low-maintenance salad boasts an obviously gorgeous presentation, but it tastes like heaven. The acidic pops of blood orange and creamy avocado are an undeniable combination.


Makes 4 servings

1 bag arugula 1 avocado, quartered and sliced 2 blood oranges, segmented 2 heirloom tomatoes, sliced into 1-inch pieces 1 handful crumbled goat cheese 1/4 cup of my favorite salad dressing

1. In a large bowl, carefully toss arugula with avocado, oranges, and tomatoes. Sprinkle with goat cheese. Serve with dressing on the side.
