Citrus Salad With Honey Lime Dressing
|Lime juice||1 Tablespoon|
|Lime zest||1⁄2 Teaspoon, finely grated|
1. Using a sharp knife, peel the grapefruits, removing all the bitter white pith. Working over a bowl, cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Discard the membranes.
2. Using a small sharp knife, peel the oranges, removing all the bitter white pith. Slice the oranges crosswise 1/4 inch thick and add to the bowl of grapefruit sections. (The can be prepared to this point up to 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate the fruit and its juice. Let return to room temperature for about 1 hour before proceeding.)
3. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, lime juice, lime zest and salt until smoothly combined.
4. Arrange the fruit on a large platter: Lay the orange slices in the center in an overlapping circle and surround with the grapefruit sections. Stir 2 tablespoons of the juice that has collected at the bottom of the fruit bowl into the honey-lime dressing and spoon it over the fruit just before serving.
