A Family Gathering and A Recipe

By
Real Estate Agent

Yesterday afternoon, 10 of my family members gathered to celebrate a milestone birthday for my youngest grandkid.  Sophia is turning 18.

There was a wonderful vegetable soup that my daughter Jill and grandkid Macie, cooked up.  There was a charcuterie board that granddaughter Isabella created.  Along with a delightful shrimp dish that my kid Tami, made, I brought along a citrus salad.  This salad is a little different, but you might wish to give it a try.  Here's the recipe.

Ingredients:

2 Blood Oranges - Peeled and Sliced.
2 Cara Cara Oranges - Peeled and Sliced.
2 Navel Oranges - Peeled and Sliced
1/2 Red Onion - Halved and Sliced
Tajin Seasoning
1/4 Cup Sliced Almonds
1/4 Cup Honey
2 Limes Squeezed into Juice
Fresh Mint Leaves - Sliced

Directions:  Arrange Orange Slices in a bowl, with the Onions.  Sprinkle Tajin Seasoning atop.  Shower with Sliced Almonds.  Stir the Honey and Lemon Juice together, and drizzle over all.  Top with Mint Leaves.

Wayne Martin - The citrus salad would still be pretty good without the nuts.  I know some people, including one of my granddaughters who wasn't in attendance on Saturday is allergic to them.

Nina Hollander, Broker - I suspect the recipe would be as good without the onions.  If I were allergic to them, I'd simply eliminate them.
