  • zest of 1 lime
  • juice of 1 lime (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, washed and dried, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, washed and dried, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, washed and dried, roughly chopped
  • 8 Satsumas (or other seedless orange or tangerine you love)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the lime zest, lime juice, and agave or honey. Then slowly add the oil, whisking constantly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Gently stir in the mint, cilantro and basil leaves.

  3. Peel the Satsumas, and then slice them horizontally, into slices that are about ¼ inch thick.

  4. Either mix the Satsuma slices into the dressing, or arrange them on a plate or platter and drizzle the dressing with the herbs over them.

  5. Serve.
