Green Salad with Kumquats and Citrus Dressing

kumquat salad

Love this time of the year when there is an abundance of Louisiana citrus at the local farmer’s market.The rich alluvial soil in southern Louisiana on the Mississippi delta is perfect for growing satsumas, oranges, grapefruit, lemons and kumquats. I have experienced great success as a backyard gardener growing my kumquat trees in large pots. These delicate fruit trees have survived the mild frosts and are over producing this year. So, I am always looking for creative ways to incorporate them into recipes. In this case, the kumquats are the star performers of a simple green salad. I use the tart kumquats. Don’t peel them! Just pop them in your mouth skin and all.
