  • For the salad:
  • 10-12 Ounces Mixed Leafy Greens and Lettuces Little Gems, Arugula, Butter Lettuce, Raddichio, Kale, etc
  • 2 Small seasonal fruits such as Bosc Pears, Winter Citrus, Asian Pears, Apples or Persimmons, sliced or segmented
  • 1 batch of my Winter Citrus Vinaigrette ingredients listed below:
  • 2 Teaspoons fresh orange zest about the zest of one large orange
  • 6 Tablespoons fresh orange juice about the juice of one large orange
  • 2 Tablespoons diced shallot 1 small shallot
  • Kosher salt
  • 6 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Optional: splash of apple cider vinegar or pomegranate molasses for more acidity
  • Optional Toppings:
  • Few Handfuls of toasted nuts seeds, or breadcrumbs
  • Few handfuls crumbled goat feta, or blue cheese, or big chunks of Parmesan cheese


  • Make the dressing - instructions on that are here. Set aside.
  • Arrange salad greens in large serving bowl.
  • Place half of the prepared fruit on the greens (you'll put the other half on top of the greens after tossing with the dressing so they don't all fall to the bottom of the bowl).
  • Right before serving, toss greens and fruit with enough dressing to coat. Top with rest of prepared fruit and any of your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
