Fruit is good for you.
Then why don't I ever eat it?
Winter is the perfect time for citrus fruits.
Clementines from Spain; Mineolas; Mandarins; Beautiful Sicilian Blood Oranges; Indian River Grapefruit; and those delicious California and Florida Navel Oranges, all at their peak season in January.
I received a case of navel oranges and pink grapefruit from Florida.
I think someone is trying to tell me something, maybe to avoid getting scurvy.
My produce drawers are now filled with fruit.
Here I made a simple citrus salad to go with salmon.
Nice and light for a change.
Peel some oranges, clementines and pink grapefruits, trying to get the sections out neatly, cutting away the white pith (it's a bit tedious).
Cut up some thin slices of red onion and fresh mint leaves.
Make a dressing of:
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp honey
Drizzle the dressing on the citrus slices and toss with fresh mint leaves.
You can add feta cheese just before serving to make this even better.
and get your vitamin C!
