Arugula Citrus Salad

This arugula and citrus salad is the perfect light winter dish. The fresh grapefruit and orange segments paired with the peppery arugula are topped with crunchy toasted hazelnuts, tart pomegranate seeds, and Parmesan cheese. The fresh salad is tossed with a mustard salad vinaigrette. The combination of flavors and textures make this salad one of the best I have ever had.

With bright red, green, and gold colors, this salad is not only a burst of flavor, but is a feast for the eyes, too. This would be a perfect salad for a first course for any holiday dinner party.

Kale and Grapefruit Salad

I am obsessed with this super simple and fresh kale and grapefruit salad. For some reason, grapefruit has been particularly juicy, sweet, and delicious this season. I paired it with some winter kale and crunchy pumpkin seeds for a light salad.

For this recipe, it is perfectly acceptable to play with your food. Massaging┬áthe kale with extra virgin olive oil, salt, and lemon juice makes the leaves soft and tender. See the leaves before and after…kind of crazy what a difference a little massage can make!
