Spinach Salad with Citrus. This salad blends the best of summer ingredients for a fresh salad and puts to great use grapefruits and oranges. The combination of tart fruits and spinach makes this a nice palate cleanser. Easy to assemble and very light and refreshing. The most delicious salad I have made in the past months.

Spinach salad with citrus is a perfect addition to any menus.  Excellent side dish for any fish: Tequila Shrimps with Prosciutto and Basil.  Or with Idividual Meatloaf,   And last but not least any poultry dish as Chicken Spatchcocked

The possibilities are endless as you can just enjoy it as a light lunch on the go.

TIP:
To section your oranges and grapefruit:

  • First, cut off the end base of each so it will stand steady on a flat surface.
  • Then remove all the outer skin and white pit with a steady and curved movement following the fruit.
  • With a very sharp small utility knife cut down and separate the skin and the membrane of the orange and grapefruit. Gently pull out or slide off with the knife.

The pulp remaining after all the sections have been removed has a lot of juice still left, do squeeze the remaining white pit to collect the remaining juice.

I always remove the long stems of the spinach, personal choice of course for the spinach salad.

    I’m a big fan of fruity salads. Spinach salad with orange and grapefruit looks very inviting with the citrusy dressing. Perfect as a light meal or as an accompaniment to the main dish. Peeling off the membrane from citrus fruits takes time but its totally worth the effort.

    I have my spinach growing like crazy in my garden and every few days I am picking it and searching for recipes. This looks like a delicious salad. I love the hint of cinnamon and the crunch from the nuts in this.
