We now have Sweet & Juicy Gold Nugget Tangerines available at your local Foodland! Gold Nugget Tangerines are so easy to peel you’ll be enjoying their juicy, seedless segments in seconds! The season for this Tangerine is only through May, so you’ll need to enjoy it while it’s here. This is my personal favorite Tangerine, and while I really enjoy Clementine’s as well, I think the Gold Nugget Tangerine is even sweeter and juicer.
This is a fun healthy snack for your keiki, and they're the perfect size to pack in a home lunch. I really enjoy slices of fresh Gold Nugget Tangerines on salads too! Here’s a refreshing recipe for one of my favorite salads that I’d like to share with you:
Tangerine and Feta Salad
3 cups mixed lettuces
1/2 tangerine, peeled & diced
Handful of blueberries or blackberries
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp tangerine juice (from the remaining half of the fruit)
1-2 drops of agave nectar, to taste
Pinch of fresh black pepper
Combine the lettuces, diced tangerine, berries and cheese in a serving bowl. In a small jar, combine remaining ingredients, and shake well to emulsify the dressing. Drizzle dressing over the salad, and serve.
Note: Feel free to improvise with any selection of greens, other fruits and cheese you have on hand!
