Spinach & Citrus Salad


It’s spring time, which means that it is citrus season! The oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes at the farmers market were just enormous! I don’t think I’ve ever seen fruit so large in my life. I learned this recipe from Kat at the Garden School Foundation and helped her teach it to a class of second graders who absolutely loved it (even though its a little healthier then they’re used to). It’s a perfect combination of tangy, sweet, creamy, and crunchy!

Serving Size: 4 Salads

  • 1 Bag Spinach
  • 1 Blood Orange
  • 1 Grapefruit
  • 4 Clementines
  • 1 Avocado, de-seeded and cut in
  • Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)


  • 3 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 3 TBSP Fresh Lime Juice
  • A dash or two of cayenne pepper (depending on your spice preferences)
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  1. Carefully peel and cut the blood oranges, grapefruits, and clementines into small pieces.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, cayenne, and salt.
  3. Divide the spinach into four bowls. Mix the fruit together with the dressing, and place on top of the spinach. Top with pepitas and enjoy!
