Honey Citrus Salad

This easy recipe for Honey Citrus Salad is just for me. You know those precious weekend mornings you get all alone? It doesn’t happen often. The kids are at a sleep over. The husband is off hunting or whatever…you really don’t care. You. Are. Home. Alone!!

Wake up…total silence. You brew yourself some delicious coffee, snuggle up in a blanket in your favorite chair. And sit. In peace and quiet. Alone. Then you get hungry. What to eat? Wait…I can make anything I want. In a serving size meant for one person. After a quick survey of the fridge and pantry, I went for fruit. Simple, fresh and with a touch of honey and cinnamon, so delicious!

 

A bright and healthy treat for one : Honey Citrus Salad.

My favorite thing about this Honey Citrus Salad? EASY.

Use whatever citrus fruit you have on hand. I had a ruby red grapefruit and a couple of oranges.

 

Honey Citrus Salad is a bright and healthy way to start your day. With sweet honey and just a touch of cinnamon, this is an easy recipe you will love.

 

Simply cut the peel and pith (that bitter white stuff) away from the fruit. (Apparently I was enjoying my day alone so much I didn’t bother to take a picture of this step.)

Check out this easy tutorial from The Joy of Cooking on how to quickly supreme your citrus fruit. This is the method I used to get the best part of the grapefruit and oranges for my Honey Citrus Salad.

Too easy and delish!

Ok, now here comes the hard part. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon.  Stir and let it rest for about 5 minutes for the fruit to blend with the honey and spice.

🙂 Spoon the Honey Citrus Salad into your favorite pretty bowl. (Remember, you can enjoy this time alone any way you would like. I enjoyed mine in this bowl.)

    I love this salad. Can’t eat it to often because of my diabetes.
