Grilled Citrus and Arugula Salad

Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Serves: 6


2 blood oranges, sliced ¼” thick, seeds removed

1 lemon, sliced ¼” think, seeds removed

4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

¼ small red onion, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 bunch of arugula

1/4 cup of fresh mint leaves

1 avocado, sliced


  1. Preheat the grill to 425ºF. Toss the blood orange and lemon slices with 1 tbsp of oil on; season with salt and pepper. Grill the citrus, turning over a few times and starting to caramelize, 10-15 minutes. This will make the citrus flavor more complex. Let those cool.
  2. Combine the onion and lemon juice in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper and let it sit for at least 5 minutes (this way the onion will soften in flavor).
  3. Add the grilled citrus to the bowl with the onion along with the arugula and mint. Drizzle the remaining 3 tbsp of oil, season with salt and pepper and toss everything to combine.
  4. Add the avocado and enjoy!
