We love the simplicity and interest of this dish, we hope you will too! As usual, you can find almost all of the ingredients at our BSF Farm Store.
This dish is the embodiment of “in with the new.” This recipe by Jess Damuck is a fun way to switch things up and get playful with your food.
- 1-2 oranges
- 1-2 grapefruits
- 1-2 ripe avocados
- Sliced radish
- Olive oil
- Flaky salt
- Star fruit, optional
- BSF Micro Sorrel
Supreme the citrus by cutting off all of the fleshy parts with a pairing knife. This makes them easier to chew and break apart while avoiding the pesky fibrous bits. Slice your avocado, radish, and lime. I added a sliced star fruit to the recipe, even though it was not included in the original ingredients, because my star fruit tree is full of ripe fruit. They added a beautiful touch and a pop of sweetness, but they are not necessary for this simple salad.
Next, layer all of your sliced citrus and avocado on a large flat dish, making sure to distribute your fruit evenly. Top with radish slices and a microgreen of your choosing. Drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil, squeeze on some lime, and sprinkle some flaky sea salt. Enjoy!
