Guys, the citrus available right now (at least in California) is seriously amazing. Grapefruit, blood oranges, regular oranges, so juicy and sweet they’re pretty much perfect. I love snacking on these delicious fruits throughout the day, but often forget that they taste great added and mixed in with other dishes. For example, salad. Who knew that adding all kinds of bright citrus to a fresh green salad would be so good? Ok, I had a sneaking suspicion, but I didn’t realize how well it would turn out.
In all seriousness, though, this smoked salmon salad is so super easy to make and it’s even healthier. There is NO cooking, NO need for a million pots or pans, and no guilt after.
I know, you’re welcome.
Mixed together with fresh smoked salmon, creamy ripe avocado, and refreshing cucumber, this one is a keeper (and the perfect restart salad after a month-long vacay).
