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.
