Citrus Cocktail Salad

Here's a refreshing dose of vitamin C in a cup full of flavor that will make the "medicine" go down without sugar. All these citrus tangy and sweet you can put together and make an incredible cocktail enjoyed as it is or add exciting flavors like chocolate mint, candied ginger and star anise. Steep any of the garnish in the juice of all the citrus and pour it in individual cup respectively. This way you can distinguish which one you like best.
Cara cara oranges, mandarines, and pomelo wedges are peeled and seeded. Juice is set aside for the dressing.
The tart ones like the calamondin oranges and kumquat are sliced thinly with the rind and put sparingly. The lemon and lime are cut without the rind and just put 1 thin slice of each for one serving.



Candied ginger, star anise or chocolate mint  are steeped individually in the juice of the sweet citrus.
Candied Ginger
Chocolate Mint
Star Anise

Enjoy!

  10. If only all 'medicine' was as appealing as this lovely fruit cocktail. I love the idea of chocolate mint with this but I think my favourite flavour would be the candied ginger with these lovely citrus fruits.

  15. Even in a simple citrus salad your inspired creativity makes its mark; I would want all of the above, (I am crazy for citrus, every day, always) but would adore the ginger one.
