Mexican Citrus Salad
Copyright: Jack Bishop, A Year in a Vegetarian Kitchen
2 large navel oranges
1 large red grapefruit
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro leaves (optional)
1. Using a sharp knife, trim thick slices from the ends of the oranges and grapefruit so they sit flat on a work surface. Slice downward around the oranges and grapefruit to remove the colored peel and bitter white pith. Slice the peeled fruit crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick rounds.
2. Arrange the sliced oranges and grapefruit on a serving platter. Drizzle the lime juice over them and sprinkle with the chili powder and salt to taste. Garnish with the cilantro, if desired, and serve.
