Citrus Farmer’s Market Salad Recipe


Citrus Farmer's Market Salad

Hi guys – Emma here! I just wanted to quickly share.. thank you so much for being open and kind to me contributing more on the blog. I’ve been having a blast sharing more about my health and some new favorite meal ideas.

Since I’ve begun my health journey.. I’m always on the lookout for quick & delicious lunch ideas. Some days I’m into grabbing a pre-made Trader Joe’s salad.. and if I’m working from home, I try to create something yummy and fresh in a time crunch.

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know how much I love – “What’s Gaby Cooking?”. She started off as a foodie blogger, and has morphed into more of a food influencer.  She has a brand new cookbook out with the same name, and everything looks delicious of course. (Click here for her cookbook – it’s a best seller on amazon!). Gaby also lives in California, and she loves to create fresh California style food –  with beautiful natural ingredients. Her blog is filled to the brim with these delicious recipes that she posts daily.

I decided that I’m going to recreate some of her recipes here on the blog because I love them THAT much, and occasionally put my spin on them for all of you. Her Citrus Farmer’s Market Salad recipe was something that caught my eye this weekend and I knew I had to make it asap!

The colors are stunning with the bright fruit mixed with the fresh greens of the lettuce – her recipe called for avocados but I didn’t want the extra fat on mine. (Healthy fats and all) I’m sure it’s yummy both ways!
