    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 05/13/2014 - The middle of winter often finds me craving salad, and this wonderful citrus apple salad uses the fruits of winter to deliver the freshness of summer.

    • 6 cups baby arugula
    • 4 small oranges, de-seeded
    • 4 blood oranges, de-seeded
    • 1 green apple, thinly sliced
    • 1 red apple, thinly sliced
    • ½ cup pomegranate seeds
    • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • ¼ teaspoon coarse salt
    • â…› teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
    • ½ cup crumbled feta or blue cheese

    Peel and section all oranges. Reserve juice, and squeeze more for the dressing if needed. Discard any seeds.

    Grate rind from one orange into a small bowl and set aside.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together three tablespoons orange juice, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper with orange rind.

    In a separate, larger bowl, combine arugula, orange sections and apple pieces.

    Top salad with dressing and toss gently. Top with pomegranate seeds.

    Spoon onto individual serving plates and sprinkle with feta.
