This fruit combo is refreshing by itself, and a serving offers about a day's worth of vitamin C. It can also top waffles or pound cake. Garnish with thinly sliced lime rind, if desired.
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon grated lime rind
1 teaspoon grated orange rind
1 1/2 cups orange sections (about 3 oranges)
1 1/2 cups chopped peeled mango (about 1 mango)
1 1/2 cups chopped peeled papaya (about 1 papaya)
1 cup red grapefruit sections (about 2 grapefruit)
How to Make It

Combine orange and remaining ingredients in a bowl. Add sugar mixture; toss gently.
