3-4 different citrus fruits – we recommend grapefruit, blood oranges, navel oranges, and/or cara cara oranges
1 ripe avocado – thinly sliced
2 T of your favorite nuts – pistachios or pine nuts work well (add more if you like more crunch)
1/4 cup of a soft cheese – goat cheese or sheep cheese works well
2 shallots – thinly slices
Fresh herbs like mint or basil
For the dressing:
1/2 cup olive oil
3 T fresh squeezed lemon or lime juice
1 T dijon mustard
1 T local honey
Minced garlic (measure with your heart)
Salt & Pepper
Cut away the peel and pith from all the citrus, then slice the flesh into ½-inch-thick rounds or chunks.
Thinly slice your avocado.
Make the dressing by whisking together all the ingredients.
Assemble the salad on a plate by layering the citrus, shallots, and avocado. Then top with the cheese crumbled, nuts, and fresh herbs. Drizzle with a few spoonfuls of the dressing and sprinkle with salt. Serve immediately.
