Citrus Salad Recipe

Citrus Salad

Prep Time 20min

This colorful "salad" is perfect on weekend mornings. The fresh, bright flavors of the oranges and grapefruit awaken the senses and put everyone in a festive mood. Perhaps the best part about this dish is that all it requires of me in the morning is taking it out of the fridge.

How to make it
