Winter Citrus Salad
This is a salad that looks like stained glass and tastes like heaven, with a Well Seasoned kick! Sweet, tart, and very complex, this is the perfect brunch centerpiece!
One of my favorite things about winter is the abundance of different citrus fruits. In my refrigerator currently I have minneolas, mandarins, cara cara oranges, raspberry oranges, pink grapefruit, navel oranges, and tangerines. I eat them as snacks, top my morning yogurt with them, or add them in wedges to my favorite Asian Kale Salad. But today I wanted to make them the star of the dish, not the garnish.
This recipe is simple and yet amazingly complex. The lime is tart but the local wildflower honey mellows it out. And the Well Seasoned Table Candied Jalapeno Sugar adds a hint of spiciness, but isn't too spicy for a broad audience. This salad will wow your family, friends, or neighbors. Or just enjoy by yourself, with a nice glass of Prosecco. Cheers!
