Triple Citrus Arugula & Fennel Salad

Spring is definitely in the air as the time has changed and the weather is warming, but we’re still seeing peak winter produce. This spring-hopeful salad utilizes many of my winter favorites, like cara cara and blood oranges and fennel, but still has a light, crisp finish to it. this salad only involved a little bit of slicing and plating but is a total show stopper. Perfect as a side, or on its own served with toasted bread. I hope you enjoy!
