Don't get me wrong - I love cozy warming food too. However, after my second helping of Thanksgiving stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes and pie - maybe something bright, fresh and lighter would be tasty?  Just a thought. 

If you agree - this is an easy and beautiful addition to your winter/holiday/I'm just worth it table.

WINTER CITRUS SALAD RECIPE  w/ Lime & Honey Drizzle- 
(easy to increase or decrease amounts, this makes enough for 6-8 as a side dish)

3 oranges (navel or Cara Cara)
2 Blood oranges
2 Tangerines or Clementines
1 grapefruit
1 Star Fruit
1/3 cup Pomegranate seeds
1/4 cup thin sliced red onion
1 bunch Baby Arugula or your favorite greens.
Olive oil

1) Cut the tops and bottoms off all citrus.  Then cut or peel the rind from all citrus. Cut the citrus into thin rounds and save.
2) Cut the top and bottom from the star fruit, then cut in thin stars. 
3) On a large platter, drizzle olive oil for the base.  Spread the greens out over the platter and top with citrus rounds, followed by Star fruit.  
4) Sprinkle Pomegranate seeds over the top.
5) Save the Red onion until you are ready to serve, then sprinkle over the top, and Drizzle the Honey Lime Dressing too.


3 TBLS Honey
2 TBLS Champagne Vinegar (or Apple Cider Vinegar)
1 TBLS Fresh Lime juice
1/4 cup Olive Oil
pinch of dried herbs (french blend or tarragon or minced cilantro)

1) In a bowl, whisk the honey, vinegar and lime juice together well.
2) Drizzle in the olive oil, whisking until the emulsion is thicker. Lastly whisk in the seasonings.
