Mixed Greens with Citrus / Misticanza con gli Argrumi

Citrus salads are refreshing and a nice change from just a mixed green salad and they are especially welcome in winter, when salad greens are often not at their best.



  • 1 large grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
  • 1 blood orange or navel orange, peeled and sectioned
  • 6 cups mixed greens, such as arugula, endive, romaine & spinach, washed and spun dry
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 3 tablespoons Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup citrus juice
  • Salt to taste
  • Ingredients


  1. Whisk the dressing ingredients in a shallow bowl.  Add the grapefruit and orange segments to the dressing.  Cover with plastic wrap and allow to stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Place the greens in a salad bowl.  Carefully pour the dressing and citrus over the greens.  Gently toss to coat the leaves with the dressing.  Serve immediately.
  3. Variation:  When pomegranate seeds are available, sprinkle them over the dressed salad before serving.
