So go ahead, use what you have – both calamondins and clementines are welcome in this citrusy party!

Here's what you'll need:

Fresh Produce:

  • 1 peeled Clementine (or calamondin) orange
  • Spring mix lettuce (or your favorite greens)
  • Shredded carrots
  • Alfalfa sprouts

Crunchy Toppings:

  • Pistachios (roughly chopped)

The Dressing:

Big Mama's Calamondin Vinaigrette

Putting it Together:

  1. Prep the Greens: Wash and dry the spring mix lettuce (or your chosen greens). Arrange them on a serving platter.
  2. Clementine Time: Peel the clementine (or calamondin) and separate the segments. Gently break them apart into bite-sized pieces. Scatter them over the bed of greens.
  3. Veggie Delight: Add the shredded carrots and alfalfa sprouts for a delightful mix of textures and flavors.
  4. Crunchy Topping: Sprinkle the roughly chopped pistachios over the salad for a satisfying crunch.
  5. Dress to Impress: Drizzle Big Mama's Calamondin Vinaigrette over the salad, tossing gently to coat everything evenly.
  6. Serve and Enjoy!

This Clementine and Sprout Salad is a refreshing and vibrant addition to your meals.
