Citrus & Kale salad with homemade green goddess dressing


  • ¼ cup packed fresh tarragon leaves

  • ¼ cup sour cream

  • 2 Tbsp. coarsely chopped fresh chives

  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise

  • 2 Tbsp. whole milk

  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

  • ¼ tsp. salt

  • ¼ tsp. black pepper

  • 1 medium grapefruit

  • 1 medium orange

  • 1 container (5 ounces) baby kale

  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and chopped

  • ⅓ cup sliced almonds, toasted


          1. In blender, purée tarragon, sour cream, chives, mayonnaise, milk, lemon juice, salt and pepper until herbs are finely chopped. Makes about 6 tablespoons.

          2. Slice off ends of grapefruit and orange; place cut side down on cutting board. With paring knife, slice down sides of fruits to remove skin and white pith. Working with 1 fruit at a time, hold fruit over small bowl and gently cut along sides of membranes to release each segment.

          3. In large bowl, toss kale, avocado, almonds and dressing.

          4. Serve kale mixture topped with grapefruit and orange segments. Makes about 4 cups.

          Chef Tip:

          1. To toast almonds: In large skillet, cook almonds over medium heat 3 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant, stirring frequently; transfer to plate to cool.
