Citrus Salad with Red Onion and Cilantro

Citrus Salad with Red Onion and Cilantro

A vibrant salad featuring a colorful medley of citrus, topped with a tangy and sweet maple Dijon vinaigrette. This salad works with Mexican or Latin-style flavors such as a side for enchiladas or tacos.


  • 2 small grapefruit
  • 1 navel orange
  • 2 small blood oranges
  • 1 Tbsp. red onion, thinly sliced


  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. maple syrup
  • Pinch salt
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil

For garnish:

  • Fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Fresh ground pepper


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. Slice the citrus into rings.

In a medium bowl, stir together the lime juice, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt. Then gradually whisk in the olive oil 1 tablespoon at a time until creamy.

Arrange the citrus and onions on a platter or serving plates. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Top with cilantro and freshly ground pepper.
