Citrus Salad with Marzetti® Simply Dressed® Pomegranate Dressing is bright, fresh and full of flavor! With grapefruit, oranges, kale, pomegranate and almonds this salad is easy yet impressive!
One of my favorite things about winter is picking fresh citrus from my back yard. Have you ever tried a red grapefruit picked right from the tree? It tastes like candy. Seriously! With over 15 varieties of citrus on our property, there is always something fresh and unique to try. I love trying new recipes and adding citrus flavor to my meals. Citrus is a burst of fresh color and flavor during the cold days of winter. In fact, some days I slice up a few types of citrus, layer them on a plate and enjoy the beautiful colors. A beautiful color palate and a unique variety of flavors is refreshing and fun. In addition to the citrus, we always have a few pomegranates and an entire garden bed of fresh kale. Combining the citrus, pomegranate and kale yields a bold, beautiful and flavorful salad. Marzetti Simply Dressed Pomegranate Salad Dressing adds the perfect amount of subtle sweet flavor. Mix the dressing with the kale leaves and save a little extra to drizzle over the top to boost the flavor of the salad. The Marzetti Company offers a variety of salad dressings made with simple ingredients, such as extra virgin olive oil, canola oil, and sea salt. The salad dressing complements any salad or meal with no preservatives, trans fat, high fructose corn syrup or artificial ingredients. It adds a pure, fresh flavor to the salad. With the Marzetti Simply Dressed Pomegranate Dressing, you can have a taste of pomegranate flavor in every season. The best thing about this salad is that it’s easy. Even counting the time it takes me to pick the fresh fruit and kale, I can have this salad ready in less than 15 minutes. A fresh citrus salad with Marzetti Simply Dressed Pomegranate Dressing is the perfect addition to a balanced lifestyle. It works well for lunch or as a side with dinner. It is one of my favorite things to enjoy after a long hike or an intense workout. This recipe makes one large serving or two small servings. Try this salad for a burst of color and flavor!
