Citrus, Strawberry and Avocado Christmas Salad

Citrus, Strawberry and Avocado Christmas Salad

Wonderfully fresh and bursting with flavour, this citrus strawberry and avocado salad will put a splash of summer on your Christmas menu. Sweet strawberries, juicy citrus, creamy avocado and crisp cucumber, such a refreshing combo. The flavour of this salad sparkles with the bright acidity of the orange vinaigrette.

Serves: 4 -6 

Prep time: 20 mins


  • 1 grapefruit
  • 3 oranges
  • 6 mandarins
  • 250g strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1 avocado, peeled and sliced, drizzled with lemon juice
  • 1 Telegraph cucumber, sliced
  • handful of young and tender green peas in a pod, sliced
  • activated seed mix
  • edible flowers to garnish

For orange vinaigrette:

  • 1 Tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tsp white wine vinegar
  • juice of half orange
  • 4 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • black pepper
  • salt



Cut citrus fruits into disks. Just peel the fruit with your knife as you would for suprèmes, but instead of cutting out wedges in between the membranes, slice the fruit crosswise. You end up with disks of citrus that still contain a bit of membrane, but those bits are cut short enough that they're not too bothersome in a salad.

For the orange dressing

Combine all ingredients for the dressing in a jar with a tight sitting lid, shake together until well blended.

 Spread citrus on a serving dish. Top with sliced strawberries, cucumber and avocado. Drizzle the salad with orange dressing, then sprinkle with the activated seeds. Garnish with the sliced pea pods and edible flowers.
