Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad

| Added by: | All author's recipes 172 | All author's tips 148 | Rating: likes 0, dislikes: 0

This salad of oranges, grapefruits and pomegranate seeds is the perfect antidote to all the overindulgence of the holidays. The fruits are soaked in their own juices, which makes a refreshing (not to mention gorgeous) magenta syrup that you’ll want to drink straight from the bowl. With only three ingredients, it’s easy enough to make for yourself for breakfast but also elegant enough to serve company.

Step 1 - Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad

Let’s begin with the pomegranate, which can be a little intimidating if you’ve never cut into one. Pomegranates are full of glistening ruby-red seeds called arils, which are like little capsules of juice that burst in your mouth. The taste is similar to citrus – a little tart, a little sweet – and they’re full of vitamin C and antioxidants. When you see them at the store, they’re ripe and ready to eat. Pick one that feels heavy for its size (the heavier the fruit, the juicier it will be) with blemish-free skin.
Before you cut into it, put on an old shirt you don’t care about because the juice squirts and stains and an apron alone won’t cut it. Starting at the crown, cut a cross into the fruit about halfway down.

Step 2 - Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad
2

Put a large bowl in the sink (the juice will stain cutting boards) and, holding the pomegranate facing down over the bowl, break it apart into quarters.

Step 3 - Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad
3

Squeeze each quarter firmly over the bowl to release the seeds and juices. Bend each quarter back to release more seeds.

Step 4 - Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad
4

Don’t worry about getting all the seeds out. What you really want is the juice, so squeeze the fruit again to release the juice from any remaining seeds. You’ll be left with this.

Step 5 - Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad
5

In the bowl, you’ll have plenty of juice and seeds, along with some of the white membrane.

Step 6 - Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad
6

Pick out any bits of the white membrane so all that remains are seeds and juice.

Step 7 - Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad

Now for the orange. Cut a slice off the top and bottom so the orange sits flat, then use a knife to work your way around the orange to remove all the skin and pith.

Step 8 - Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad
8

Holding the orange over the bowl, use a sharp knife to cut out the segments from in between the membranes.

Step 9 - Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad
9

Squeeze all the juice from the oranges into the bowl, then repeat with the grapefruits.

Step 10 - Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad

That’s all there is to it. Enjoy!
