This refreshingly simple citrus salad features grapefruit and oranges topped with a tangy vinaigrette and fresh mint. A light and healthy side dish!


  • 2 small grapefruit
  • 1 navel orange
  • 2 small blood oranges
  • 1 small shallot
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh mint, for garnish
  • Fresh ground pepper, for garnish
  • Finely crushed pistachios (optional), for garnish


  1. Cut off the peel of the grapefruit and oranges: slice off the ends, then angle your knife and follow the curve to remove the peels (follow Steps 1 & 2 of How to Cut an Orange). Slice the citrus into rings.
  2. Thinly slice the shallot into thin rings.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, and 1 pinch kosher salt. Then gradually whisk in the olive oil 1 tablespoon at a time until creamy.
  4. Arrange the citrus and shallots on a platter or serving plates. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Top with torn mint leaves and fresh ground pepper. If desired, top with finely crushed pistachios.
