Citrus-Strawberry Salad

Yield Makes 4 servings
Arrange grapefruit shells filled with this refreshing salad on a tray for an attractive presentation.


  • 2 pink grapefruit
  • 2 tangerines
  • 3 cups strawberries, coarsely chopped
  • 4 kiwifruit, peeled and cubed
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon orange flower water (optional)*
  • Garnish: fresh mint sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Cut grapefruit in half. Carefully remove grapefruit segments with a paring knife, leaving shells intact. Remove and discard seeds and bitter pith from segments. Cut segments into bite-size pieces; place in a bowl. Peel tangerines with a paring knife, removing membranes between segments; cut segments into bite-size pieces, and add to bowl.

  2. Add strawberries, kiwifruit, powdered sugar, and, if desired, orange flower water to bowl, stirring gently. Cover and chill 1 hour. Spoon mixture evenly into grapefruit shells; garnish, if desired.

  3. *1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind may be substituted for 1 teaspoon orange flower water.

  4. Note: Orange flower water can be found in some ethnic markets such as Asian, Mediterranean, or Italian.
