Florida Citrus Salad

27 Nov

Winter in Florida means fresh citrus not snow, thank goodness. This recipe is dedicated to my sweet daughter-in-law, who loves grapefruit.

  • 5-6 oranges
  • 2 red grapefruits
  • 1 lime
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley


  • zest and juice from one lemon
  • 1/4 cup fat free sour cream
  • 2 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds

Peel the oranges, grapefruits and limes, removing all of the white pith. Cut the fruit in between the membranes to release the sections. Cut grapefruit and lime sections into thirds. Drain the juice off. Add the sliced shallot and parsley.

Mix all of the dressing ingredients together. Top the citrus mix with the dressing.

They poppy seed dressing goes well with other salads as well. Make enough to use other times as well.
