LUX / FOOD >> Orange & Arugula salad x Hilary Perez

Desanka Fasiska

Orange & Arugula Salad w/ Raspberry Citrus Vin

This is a great, fresh summer salad. It is perfect as a starter for dinner or as a light lunch with a grilled chicken breast. I always utilize my local farmers markets as the produce is always at its peak but one can find anything these days in supermarkets. Try to stick to organic whenever possible. 


  • 2-3 seedless Oranges, cut into rounds (1/2 tsp orange zest reserved for dressing)
  • 1/3 cup crumbled Sheepsmilk Feta (or Goat Cheese)

  • Few Basil leaves cut into ribbons


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • ½ tsp orange zest
  • 2 tbs white wine vin
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp Grey Poupon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup Driscoll raspberries
  • Salt & Pep TT

Zest 1 of the oranges and put into blender along with all of the other ingredients and blend until emulsified. Cut the bottom and top off orange and with a paring knife try and peel away the skin and all pith of the orange and then slice into rounds. Arrange on a plate with ¼ of the arugula and lightly drizzle with the raspberry vinaigrette. Top with ¼ of the cheese and toasted almonds and garnish with basil ribbons. Enjoy!
