Citrus Salad

It's fresh, it's citrus-y, its delightful. 

It was a typical NYC afternoon... hot and humid asf. I was so over it. After riding my bike around to run a million and two errands, I thought to myself, what do I want rn? What would make me happy? And more importantly, what is gunna fill me and @nasleber up? He was popping by for dinner and I'm not about to let my boys leave still feeling hungry. 

We needed some hydration and some vitamin c. Mix it up with some butter head lettuce and we were in business. We also consumed some fire ass pan-fried sesame tofu, but that is another post. 

This one is simple. Hang out and catch this vibe and if you want something to tantalize your ears while you do so, you can pop over to one of his mixes, this one is a personal fav and staple in our home.

Uhh ya, let's get into this. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of butter lettuce
  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 citrus pieces (we did 2 blood orange, 1 grapefruit and 1 orange)
  • 1 avocado 
  • Fennel (this is optional)

For the dressing:

*adapted from Bon Appetit

  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped

  • ¾ C. olive oil

  • ¼ C. Champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar

  • 3T. fresh lemon juice

  • 2T. fresh orange juice

  • ¼t. finely grated lemon zest

  • Salt to taste

Make the dressing first so it can sit. Combine all your other ingredients and enjoy. Feel free to nibble on oranges through out this process. 

Top with hemp seeds for added protein and omega.
