This salad is the epitome of a recipe without a recipe, and I mean that in the best way. My Winter Salad with Seasonal Fruit + Citrus Vinaigrette comes together with three components: start with your favorite leafy greens, add a combination of any seasonal fruit, and toss with my Citrus Vinaigrette for the easiest salad ever. From there you can serve the salad as is, or you can add some toasted nuts or seeds for crunch, or crumbled cheese for added richness. It’s simple, seasonal, vibrant, and so flavorful. That’s my ideal salad situation.
Serve this salad alongside a hearty dish like my Gnocchi with Herby Brown Butter Sauce for the perfect special-occasion meal at home. Be sure to check out the riff section for creative ways to spin this recipe depending on what flavors you like. I love using seasonal pears or persimmons, but you could use strawberries or stone fruit if you're making this in the spring or summer.
This Winter Salad with Seasonal Fruit + Citrus Vinaigrette is simple and delicious. Bring this adaptable recipe along your next grocery run for the next time you want a show-stopping salad.
