Colourful Citrus Salad

Not only bright in colour but flavour too, this fresh salad is perfect for anytime of year.

The small bits of pickled red onion and olive are my favourite, they bring a salty, briny and acidic bite to the dish.

Get creative with different varieties of citrus and beets too!
