Citrus Salad with Fennel, Arugula, & Mozzarella

Well, everyone I know (including me) has a cold right now. My answer to colds (besides zinc and a large afghan), is citrus. It just makes you feel refreshed. I wholeheartedly recommend this citrus, fennel, arugula, and mozzarella salad both for its therapeutic and delicious-ness purposes.  

Citrus Salad with Fennel, Arugula, & Mozzarella

If you'd like to make this a vegan salad, swap out the mozzarella for some avocado. This salad needs some creaminess and either cheese or avocado can give you that.

One of the things that makes this salad to special is the cara cara oranges. I only discovered them a few years ago and they are awesome! They're a stunning color and sweeter than a typical navel orange. They're perfect in a salad with grapefruit as they balance out any touches of bitterness.

I hope you enjoy this bright winter salad as much as I do!
