Sunshine in a bowl!!!

Amy Croyle


I came up with this when my sister was pregnant with her first child, She would not eat much do to bad morning sickness but she was obsessed with all things citrus. This is a pretty simple salad to make once you master sectoining the citrus, though that part can be a little time consuming. I gave this recipe a difficulty of Medium just because of that. This is so yummy we eat it as a dessert at our house, sometimes over vanilla ice cream! It has a great presentation, I like to serve it in a glass dish with some fresh mint sprigs on top.

How to Make Sunshine in a bowl!!!


  1. Section the citrus you have chosen, I usually use two pomelos, one rubyred, one white, and one pink grapefruit, two honey tangerines, and two blood orange. The sharper the knife the easier this is.
  2. Place sectioned peices in a strainer/colander for ten minutes or so to let excess juice drip out. transfer to bowl.
  3. If using pomegranate arils seperate them from fruit. (you can some times also buy these already seperated for you) Add to bowl.
  4. In small microwave safe bowl or mug heat honey for fifteen (15) seconds, till nice and runny, add raspberry jam and mix.
  5. pour honey mix over fruit and carfully mix.
  6. Serve on its own or toped with/over ice cream! Garnish with fresh mint if you wish. So simple yet to yummy!!!
  7. PS. I like to juice the rest, the inner part of the citrus fruit when done sectioning out the peices. there is usually lots of good juice left in there!
