Simple Citrus Salad
An all citrus fruit salad with sweet oranges, tangelos, or clementines, showy blood oranges, bittersweet pink grapefruit and a smattering of lip-puckering lemon. Garnish with ribbons of toasted coconut and crushed pistachio and drizzle with honey or your favourite liquid sweetener.
- 1 grapefruit
- 2-3 oranges or other sweet citrus fruit (use 1 type or a mix of types: tangelos, clementines, mandarins, blood oranges)
- 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup unsweetened ribbon coconut
- 1/4 cup pistachios
- liquid sweetener of choice (honey, agave, maple syrup)
Preheat the oven to 350F. Spread out the coconut on a baking sheet and bake for about 8 minutes until toasted. Set aside.
Roughly chop the pistachios and set aside.
Use a sharp knife to slice the the citrus fruits into even-sized slices, about 1/8th to 1/4 of an inch. Trim the peel of the slices and remove any seeds.
Arrange the citrus on a plate, sprinkle on the toasted coconut and pistachios, and drizzle with sweetener.
This citrus salad is best served fresh. However, you can prep the citrus a few hours before, or overnight and store it in the fridge. Garnish with the coconut, pistachios, and sweetener just before serving.
Nutritional information is an estimate only, using a grapefruit, navel oranges, and a lemon as the citrus.
