Suprême-ly good Citrus Salad


For a fresh citrus salad, I opt for grapefruit rather than a sweeter citrus, like orange or mandarin. It lends itself better to dressing, and I find it easier to cut the acidity and add depth with just a few additions.

Here's how to make the best citrus salad this summer season! It's surprisingly easy, and all you need for tools is a cutting board, proper knife and a beautiful serving bowl.


In your serving bowl, combine and lightly toss together:

  • 2 grapefruits, peeled from the rind and suprêmed

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp sumac

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil*

  • Cilantro, optional

  • Fresh mint

  • Juice from 2 lemon (or lime) wedges


Tips & Substitutions: Olive oil cuts the bitterness and tartness of the grapefruit. And if you're looking for a sumac substitution, add a teaspoon of lemon zest instead. If you want a naturally sweeter salad or one with greater depth, include a Cara Cara or Moro orange. Feel free to customize and skip the cilantro.


Mother nature never clashes! Salud!
