5 from 1 reviews

A bright, refreshing salad that only takes about 10 minutes to make. A healthy and delicious way to take advantage of all the in-season citrus this winter!



  • 34 citrus fruits (a variety of grapefruit, orange, clementines, etc.)
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup chopped pistachios¬†
  • 2 cups watercress or arugula
  • 2 TBSP high-quality olive oil
  • 1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
  • Sea salt flakes, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Cut the citrus by slicing off the ends and around the edges to peel. Carefully slice the whole citrus into rounds (about 1/2 inch thick).
  2. Assemble sliced citrus on a plate or serving tray with sliced avocado and watercress; top with pistachios. 
  3. Whisk together the olive oil and lemon juice. Drizzle over the salad and garnish with additional sea salt flakes and black pepper as desired (note: if you don’t want to top the salad with sea salt flakes/pepper, whisk a pinch to taste into the dressing).¬†
