Zing and beauty. A salad that will make you smile even on the dreariest of Winter days. 

Spicy Winter Citrus Salad
serves 4

Ingredients:
10 citrus fruits (grapefruit, oranges, blood oranges, clementine, lime)
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more if you like heat)
Kosher salt
1/3 cup pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)

Directions:
Place your cutting board on a baking sheet with sides to capture all the juices as you remove the rinds of all the fruit with a sharp knife and cut each fruit crosswise into ¼-inch rounds. Remove any visible seeds. Arrange sliced fruit on a serving platter.

In a small bowl, whisk together the reserved juices from the fruit, honey and pepper. Salt to taste. Pour mixture over the fruit. Garnish with pumpkin seeds. Serve immediately.

 

NOTE: For a different look to this salad, why not try segmenting your citrus. Here’s a quick fun video to show you how!
