Citrus, beet and fennel salad with smoked salmon

sreving dumplings | Citrus, beet and fennel salad with smoked salmon

This citrus salad is full of colors, tastes and vitamins. It has a great contrast of textures between the juicy oranges and grapefruit, soft, roasted beets and crispy fennel. I added smoked salmon, pomegranate seeds and watercress, also enriched the salad with coriander and honey vinaigrette with fresh ginger and garlic. Serve it as a light dinner or a side dish with meat or fish.
