Winter Caprese Salad w/ Citrus


I feel the need for bright colorful food during the dreary winter months, don't you?

I love this idea I saw on Marie's site.....a winter Caprese salad with sliced winter citrus and mozzarella!

Here, I layered my favorite blood oranges and clementines with fresh mozzarella and thinly sliced red onion.

Feel free to use CaraCara oranges and grapefruit too.

I found some fresh mint at the market, so liked that idea better than basil......

and for the dressing, I drizzled w/ white balsamic vinegar and avocado oil.

A sprinkle of sea salt & pepper.


This was lunch for one, but I will be making it again for two. ;)

LOVED.

I think you could also used some sliced beets as well. Beautiful salad and great idea.

Where did you get that lovely serving plate?

Stacey Snacks said...

Robin,

You know me, I always come up with a cool plate or platter....most of them antique, but this one is a one of a kind hand thrown pottery bowl. I love it too.

Thanks!
Stacey

Stacey... I remember you posting somewhere ( either on blog or instagram) that you found the British caster sugar. Can you send me to that info? I love to follow your recipes and love the idea of more cake flavor.

I will miss you when you "retire". But I get it!
