1. Let's begin our culinary adventure! First, we shall pickle the onions. Place the finely sliced red onion in a small bowl and pour the red wine vinegar over them. Let these little gems marinate for about 15 minutes, allowing their flavors to mingle and dance.
2. While the onions work their magic, line your serving plate with a bed of vibrant Boston lettuce leaves. This will be the canvas for your masterpiece.
3. Ah, the avocado! Cut it in half, remove the pit, and lovingly scoop spoonfuls of creamy avocado goodness onto your plate. Season it with a pinch of flaky salt and a dash of Aleppo pepper, turning it into a flavor bomb.
4. Time to introduce the beets. Arrange those roasted beet quarters on your canvas, making sure they're perfectly placed.
5. The citrus duo is up next. Carefully peel the oranges and grapefruit, freeing their delightful segments. Arrange them like precious gems on your plate.
6. Let's not forget the tomato. Lightly salt the slices and place them with grace on your masterpiece.
7. The cucumber, a refreshing addition. Give them a gentle seasoning of salt and arrange them elegantly on your plate.
8. Now, break the Slow Roasted Citrus Salmon into tender pieces and arrange them as if they were pearls of the sea.
9. It's time for the grand finale! Drizzle the Citrus Shallot Vinaigrette over your masterpiece, adding a final sprinkle of flaky salt to elevate the flavors.
10. As you take that first bite, savor the freshness, the vibrancy, and the symphony of flavors. Every mouthful is a journey into the heart of culinary artistry. Enjoy!
This is more than just a salad; it's an experience that tantalizes your taste buds and nourishes your soul.
