Winter Greens Salad With Fennel, Citrus, and Creamy Citrus Vinaigrette Recipe

Winter Greens Salad With Fennel, Citrus, and Creamy Citrus Vinaigrette Recipe

This easy winter salad with bitter greens, shaved fennel, citrus, and a sweet and creamy citrus vinaigrette would do equally well with a light lunch or dinner, or as a side dish for a larger feast.

Sweet citrus contrasts nicely with the bitter greens. Adding a dash of lemon juice to the mixed citrus juice before forming the dressing gives it necessary acidity.

The chopped citrus bears a striking resemblance to the limited Starburst color palette, doesn't it? Fortunately, the flavor is brighter, fresher, and better.* I like to chop the citrus into a strainer set over a bowl so that I can collect the juices as they drip, squeezing the core of the fruit to get every last drop out. And that's how I ended up with a bowl of mixed citrus juice.

Who am I kidding here? Starbursts are awesome.

Typically, that juice becomes a cook's treat—I'm likely to drink it straight out of the bowl before anyone else gets a chance. But this time, I remembered a salad I'd eaten the week before up at Ad Hoc in Yountville, made with citrus and mizuna in a creamy citrus vinaigrette. And that's how I ended up making this salad.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds (700 grams) mixed citrus fruit (such as oranges, grapefruit, pomelo, tangerines, and mandarins), peeled and cut into suprèmes or 1/4 wheels, juices reserved separately
  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) honey
  • 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Belgian endive
  • 1 small head radicchio (about 5 ounces/150 grams)
  • 1 head escarole, washed and roughly chopped (about 6 cups/300 grams chopped leaves)
  • 1 large bulb fennel (about 6 ounces/175 grams), shaved on a mandoline
