Citrus Salad

Colorful with pink grapefruit, orange orange and green kiwi, you just feel good eating it.  The dressing is a cousin to a Catalina and a perfect match for the fruit and the peppery greens.

This is a recipe that I posted when I first started blogging. Back when I had like minus two readers. Plus it was hiding behind a great little BLT Cheeseburger, so could have went unnoticed. Anyway, I served it this week with some little sliders and it’s just so good I wanted to share the recipe again, with the spotlight completely on the salad.

      My mom would always make a salad for dinner and place three bottles of dressing on the table; Thousand Island, Catalina and Ranch. I’d always grab for the catalina.

    The rock formations in the previous post are amazing, Lea Ann. You live in a beautiful part of the country. :)

    And I know I’ve said this before, but will repeat: I love your new layout. The header is unusual, colorful and even has texture!

    Citrus salads are a favorite at my house. I like the tasty vinaigrette. Some of our best recipes were the ones we first posted.

      Thanks Barbara, it really is a special place. Thanks for the compliment on the layout. Now I just need to come up with a gravatar. I agree, I love fruit in salads when there’s a vinaigrette involved.

    Being one of your original readers, I’m so glad you brought this one back – such a great recipe and so pretty. (eating lots of colors is important) Citrus is a favorite of mine any day and the dressing sounds delicious.

    I adore citrus in a salad, recently I made a grilled grapefruit salad and I’m kicking myself for not blogging about it! Your salad looks so refreshing, perfect for a warm summer’s day.

      No burger this time Chris. I’m having a dinner party this coming weekend with all sorts of sinful offerings … trying to behave before hand. :/
