I came up with this when my sister was pregnant with her first child. She would not eat much due to bad morning sickness but she was obsessed with all things citrus. This is a pretty simple salad to make once you master sectioning 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.

What a beautiful salad recipe. It's very fragrant and smells light and airy. We used Amy's suggested fruit and loved the flavor combination. The mixture of different flavors of citrus is refreshing and the honey/raspberry jam combination pulls everything together. Pomegranate seeds add a nice little crunch. This salad tastes as good as it looks and will make a delicious light summer dessert. Great for breakfast or brunch too. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Sunshine in a Bowl

Step-by-Step

  1. Segment (or section) the citrus you have chosen. I usually use two pomelos, one ruby red, one white, and one pink grapefruit, two honey tangerines, and two blood orange. The sharper the knife the easier this is.
  2. Place sectioned pieces in a strainer/colander for ten minutes or so to let excess juice drip out. Transfer to bowl.
  3. If using pomegranate arils, separate them from fruit (you can sometimes also buy these already separated for you). Add to bowl.
  4. In small microwave-safe bowl or mug, heat honey for fifteen (15) seconds, until nice and runny. Add raspberry jam and mix.
  5. Pour honey mixture over fruit.
  6. Carefully mix.
  7. Serve on its own or topped with/over ice cream. Garnish with fresh mint if you wish. So simple, yet so yummy!!!
  8. PS: I like to juice the rest, the inner part of the citrus fruit when done sectioning out the pieces. There is usually lots of good juice left in there!
