You’ll Need:

Salad Ingredients:

  • 5 ounces of salad greens (spring mix, arugula or sweet baby lettuce mix)
    2 Limoneira Meyer lemons, peeled and segmented
  • 2 Limoneira navel oranges, peeled and segmented
  • 3/4 cup pistachios (shelled, roasted and salted)
    3/4 cup pomegranate seeds

  • 4 tbs fresh-squeezed Meyer lemon juice
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 3 tsp champagne vinegar
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • Pinch sea salt & black pepper


Whisk together lemon juice, honey, champagne vinegar, olive oil, dijon mustard, salt and pepper until the salt has dissolved and the dressing is emulsified. Place greens on a large serving platter and arrange oranges, Meyer lemons, pistachios, pomegranate and hemp seeds over the greens in a circular pattern — like a holiday wreath! Leave a spot in the center to add a small dish for the salad dressing. Dress salad just before serving and enjoy!
