Holiday Citrus Salad with Apples, Walnuts and a Blood Orange Vinaigrette

I love a good holiday salad and this one is my forever favourite! I like to serve it during the main course. The notes of citrus mixed in with the walnut, apples and peppery arugula are an amazing combination.

If you don’t want to serve it over the holidays you can do it any other time as well!
