A Healthy New Year's Brunch

Citrus Salad with Oranges and Grapefruit

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 0 minutes

Sweet seasonal citrus, mild-tasting greens, and a delicate dressing give this salad kid appeal. And it supplies all the immune-boosting vitamin C that 4- to 8-year-olds need daily. Make the salad ahead of time, and add the dressing just before serving.

  • 2 heads butterhead lettuce, washed and torn
  • 6 blood oranges, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 pink grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
  • 1/2 cup sliced shallots
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. In a large bowl, combine the lettuce, oranges, grapefruit, and shallots.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, orange zest and juice, salt, and pepper. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat.
