  • 2 oranges

  • 1 grapefruit

  • 2 clementines

  • cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 (5 ounce) package mixed salad greens

  • 3 cups Swiss chard, thinly sliced

  • ½ cup very thinly sliced red onion

  • 2 avocados - peeled, pitted, and diced

  • ½ cup roasted and salted cashews, coarsely chopped


  1. Using a sharp knife, remove all of the peel and pith from the citrus fruit. To section each fruit, cut between the membrane and flesh of each fruit and remove the flesh. You should have 2 cups fruit. After sectioning, squeeze the leftover membranes over a bowl to reserve the juice.

  2. Combine 3 tablespoon of reserved fruit juice, olive oil, vinegar, honey, mustard, salt, and pepper in a screw top jar. Close and shake vigorously to combine.

  3. Arrange mixed greens, Swiss chard, orange, grapefruit, and clementine sections, red onion, avocado, and cashews on a large serving platter. Drizzle with dressing.
