Baking citrus at a high heat caramelizes the sugars and adds depth. It’s just the thing to bring intrigue to salads.


  • 1 blood or Valencia orange, sliced ⅛” thick, seeds removed
  • 1 Meyer or regular lemon, sliced ⅛” thick, seeds removed
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh Meyer or regular lemon juice
  • 1 bunch watercress or arugula, thick stems trimmed
  • 1 avocado, cut into wedges

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 425°. Toss orange and lemon slices with 1 Tbsp. oil on a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Roast citrus, tossing occasionally, until lightly charred in spots and starting to caramelize, 10–15 minutes. This makes the citrus flavor more complex. Let cool.

  • Meanwhile, combine onion and lemon juice in a large bowl; season with salt and pepper and let sit 5 minutes (onion will soften a bit and get slightly sweeter and less harsh).

  • Add roasted citrus to bowl with onion along with arugula and mint. Drizzle remaining 3 Tbsp. oil over; season with salt and pepper and toss everything to combine and coat.

  • Add avocado and very gently toss until lightly dressed (you don’t want to crush the avocado).
