What We’re Making: Winter Citrus Salad

The perfect way to brighten up a chilly evening, a winter citrus salad adds color and flavor to every plate. While the easy-to-make dish can take on many permutations, we’re partial to the version developed by Denver and Claudia Sheddy, the duo behind Fort Worth, Texas-based meal delivery and catering company My Sweet Roots. Here, they outline how to make the salad— which uses four different types of citrus, avocado, and cilantro, red onion, and feta for extra flavor—at home.

Winter Citrus Salad

Serves 4


  • 1 orange
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 2 blood oranges
  • 4 kumquats, halved
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 handful of cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup whole fat feta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon chopped pistachios


Using a sharp knife, peel and slice the citrus into half-inch pieces, and arrange on a platter with the sliced avocado and red onion. Top with the halved kumquats, cilantro, and feta. Drizzle generously with olive oil, and season with salt to taste.
