Citrus Farmers Market Salad


Total Time:

Continuing on our Spring Brunch extravaganza today with this Citrus Farmers Market Salad with literally ALL THE CITRUS!

Citrus Farmers Market Salad from (@whatsgabycookin)

We’re at the end of citrus season and while I’m so excited for all the spring produce to kick it into high gear, I’m also super bummed citrus won’t be available like it has been recently. I’ve been stocking up on satsumas, grapefruits, tangerines, blood oranges, you name it, like it’s my job. I can’t get enough! This Market Salad is loaded with everything from the Santa Monica farmers market and drizzled with a really simple lemon shallot vinaigrette to bring the citrus theme full circle. It’s the perfect compliment for your brunching activities this weekend and it pairs PERFECTLY with any one of the tarts I posted yesterday! Have at it! xx

    hi gaby – i really like your site and have used many of your recipes. i saw something similar to this recipe in our local paper and it looked delicious. unfortunately, i made a dog’s dinner out of separating the citrus from the membranes. maybe you could post a video on how to do this as beautifully as you have done in your photograph?

    Hi Gaby,
    First, I am a huge fan of your recipes! I love everything that I have tried. I recently started really cooking and your recipes are so fun and inventive that they inspire me to try new things. My friends & family are also big fans!
    Second, I’m curious about how many this salad feeds. I am bringing it to Easter on Sunday for a group of 17 (including a handful of teenagers). What do you recommend?
    Thank you!

    Hi Gaby!
    How many would you say this feeds? I’d like to make it for my family’s Easter lunch (there will be 17). Thank you!

      Thank you so much! Sorry for my double comments – it didn’t look like one had entered.

    The salad looks delicious but the greens in the salad don’t look like butter lettuce.

  6. Val

    I agree with Marcy, salad is beautiful but the greens look like much more than butter lettuce…mixed field greens with others added???
