6 Ways to Add Citrus to Your Salad

citrusMaybe it’s because I live in the Sunshine state, but I love me some citrus. Lemons, grapefruits, oranges, tangerines- all of them. I even grow limes in a pot on my porch just so that I always have them on hand for gin and tonics cooking. 🙂

One of my new favorite things to do is work citrus into my salads- zest, juice, flesh and all. It adds such a fresh, crisp, tangy element to greens. And, citrus is low-calorie, chock full of vitamin C, and great for the immune system.  Here are 6 great recipes to work some citrus into your diet…
