Citrus Salad

A citrus salad makes a refreshing match to BBQ food. The dressing with its touch of Tequila adds a little punch to this salad.


  • 2 oranges
  • 1 pink grapefruit (optional)
  • 3-4 spring onions, trimmed and sliced
  • 200 grams cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tblsp chopped jalapeno chillies
  • 2 tblsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 tblsp chopped fresh mint
  • 2-3 cups rockets leaves
  • 4 tblsp lime juice
  • 2 tsp grated lime rind
  • 2 tblsp Tequila
  • 3 tblsp olive oil


  1. Grate or zest the rind from the oranges. Cut away the thick white pith and then segment or dice the flesh.
  2. Cut the rind and bitter white pith from the grapefruit and dice or segment the flesh.
  3. Toss together the oranges, grapefruit, spring onions, cherry tomatoes, chillies, herbs and rocket with the dressing. Serve chilled.


  1. Stir all the ingredients together; season with salt and white pepper if wished.

Cooks Tips

- Occasionally we can buy fresh jalapeno chillies. If unavailable use well-drained bottled ones or dried jalapeno chillies that have been reconstituted in cold water.
