It's that time of year when all the citrus is absolutely bursting at the farmers markets and I'm taking full advantage of this juicy season! You guys know I'm all about a big, colorful salad, and this one couldn't be easier to throw together. It's super simple because these fresh ingredients just shine on their own and don't need much to turn them into a delicious salad. It really doesn't even require a "recipe" - just throw your favorite citrus over a big bed of lettuce, add some avocado slices, mint, and pistachios, dress it with a good olive oil, some lemon, and season with salt and pepper, and you're good to go!
Seriously so fresh and juicy, right!? Want to make your salad look extra pretty with those citrus segments? Here's how to segment your citrus (also called supremed citrus), it's really not too hard!

Need a visual? Here's good ol' Martha to help us out. Not in the mood to segment your citrus? Just cut the peel off and then slice the fruit into rounds and it will taste just as delicious!
4 big handfuls of your favorite greens - I used red butter lettuce because it's so colorful and pretty!
1 grapefruit, sliced or segmented
1 orange (I used blood orange), sliced or segmented
1 avocado, sliced
1/4 cup fresh mint, roughly chopped or torn
1/4 cup pistachios
Drizzle of good-quality extra virgin olive oil
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Salt & pepper to taste
