The amount of citrus coming out of my kitchen (thanks to my weekly farmers market trips) is truly outrageous. I can’t be stopped – so if you’re anything like me, this Pomegranate Citrus Salad is the perfect recipe to use up all that fresh fruit!

When the height of citrus season rolls around, there’s no messing around here. I am at the farmers market every Sunday morning when it opens to hoard all sorts of citrus! Cara Cara oranges, Sumos, Kishus, Blood Oranges, Satsumas, you name it. I can’t get enough.

Without fail, I end up coming home with 10+ pounds of citrus on a weekly basis! You could just eat all those delicious fruits plain, but you could also turn them into a Citrus Salad that will rock your world!

This recipe is loaded with 6 kinds of citrus, a few avocados and some pomegranate seeds to give it some flare. Add to that a lemon red wine vinaigrette and you won’t make any other salad until citrus season is over!

    Made this last night on the fly for 2 so I used one of each fruit instead of two. I did make the dressing as written…. because dressing always right ? Absolutely a fabulous pairing with a meal to add another wonderful fresh flavor profile. Plus it’s colorful and fun. Get it !
