Winter Citrus Salad

After the glow of the holidays have faded and the delight in winter squash begins to pale, suddenly it’s citrus season! Winter often gets overlooked for its fruit bounty so keep your eyes open and don’t miss out. I always know it’s time when the abundance of citrus in grocery displays stops me in my tracks. Kumquats and Meyer lemons are in full glory and while the strawberries may still a little tart, it won’t be long. This salad hits all the flavor highlights and brings the promise of spring right to the table. It is sweet, salty, sour and best of all bright! To top it off, we created a French inspired strawberry vinaigrette with our Orange Tarragon blend. Full of umami with shallots, chives, garlic and black pepper, this blend brings the garden to the plate to complement the fruit. Once emulsified, this vinaigrette is a pretty, dusty pink, with bright and fruity flavors.

The recipe makes a generous measure of vinaigrette and it is delicious with so many things! Arugula, goat cheese and radicchio make a great pairing, or drizzle it on grilled salmon or chicken.
