This California Orange & Chicken Salad is a healthy and flavourful recipe to kick start the new year. Grilled chicken is placed on a bed of local greens, California avocados, and orange segments before being topped with a delicious citrus dressing. Enjoy this recipe while oranges are in season!
Orange supremes (pronounced su-PREMS) are the best way to enjoy the fruit of an orange without eating the membranes or white pith. To prepare the supremes, use a sharp paring knife to remove the top and bottom of the orange, then cut the rind off, removing the skin and white membrane. Next, hold the orange over a bowl and slice between the orange membranes to cut out the fruit, letting the orange supremes fall into the bowl below. Repeat, rotating the orange, until all the fruit is removed. Squeeze out the membrane that is left over into the bowl as you can use this orange juice for the Citrus Dressing! You can do this with oranges or any other citrus fruit you like!
