Citrus Holiday Salad

Add some sunny flavor to your holiday dinner with this simple salad. The fruit and dressing can be prepared ahead of time and stored separately, making it easy to toss at the last minute. Any greens, especially Romaine lettuce, Boston lettuce, and fresh baby spinach also work well with this recipe.

3 large seedless oranges
1 large pink grapefruit
4 tangerines
2 bunches watercress leaves
2 large heads Bibb lettuce


juice from 1 orange
2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper

Peel, segment, and coarsely chop the citrus fruit, making sure to remove all of the seeds. Wrap tightly until ready to make the salad. Whisk the salad dressing ingredients and store in an airtight container. Refrigerate the fruit and dressing until ready to serve. Right before serving, wash and tear the watercress. Wash the Bibb lettuce and separate into whole leaves. Line salad plates or bowls with the Bibb lettuce. Mix together the citrus fruit, dressing, and watercress. Evenly distribute the citrus mixture on the plates and serve.

Makes 8 servings.
