Is there anything quite so refreshing as some juicy citrus first thing in the morning??  

 I found a recipe for a citrus salad on epicurious.com. It was a little heavy on the grapefruit, so I reduced the amount of grapefruit and added some clementines and blood oranges. The assembled salad was bright & happy and was quickly gobbled up by the citrus-loving Mr.Mango.

Citrus Salad with Mint Sugar (adapted from recipe originally published in Bon Appetit)

  • 1 pink grapefruits
  • 2 blood oranges
  • 4 clementines
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • Seeds from 1 pomegranate

Cut peel and white pith from grapefruits and oranges. Slice or segment the grapefruit and oranges. Combine fruit in large shallow bowl. (Fruit can be segmented 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

Place mint and sugar in processor. Using on/off turns, blend until mint is finely chopped, occasionally scraping down sides of bowl. Sprinkle mint sugar and pomegranate seeds over fruit; serve.
