This is insanely fast and easy to pull together, impressive to serve at a brunch party, and nicely fresh which is a nice change after the sugar rush of the holidays.
We sliced the citrus to show off its sparkling beauty, then topped it with just a pinch of mint sugar. Any citrus – the more color the better – works here, but we went with grapefruit, tangerine, clementine, and a little lime.
Winter Citrus Salad with Mint Sugar
Remove rind from citrus with a sharp knife, then cut citrus crosswise to reveal the star pattern. Admittedly, this isn’t the way to cut citrus for the fastest/easiest eating experience. We chose to go with the cross sections for beauty, but if you want a fast-to-eat salad you could cut the citrus a little differently.
