So Appealing: Grapefruit and Orange Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette – Florida

If you’ve ever taken a drive into the Sunshine State, you know what awaits you at the Welcome Center: free samples of chilled fresh orange juice and grapefruit juice. While Florida is a powerhouse

Grapoefruit and Orange Salad - Floridaproducer of both fruits and veggies, it’s citrus that reigns supreme. Ironically, even though the popular orange had been in the New World since the early 1500s when Spanish explorers threw some seeds into the sandy, subtropical soil which they’d begun to settle, the fruit wasn’t given its public props until relatively recently. In 2005, a group of fourth-graders in Sarasota noticed there wasn’t an official state fruit, and they waged a successful legislative lobbying campaign giving the orange its formal designation (not that we needed a fancy title to make us love the juicy tang of pretty much all forms of citrus). This wonderful recipe combines the sweetness of the orange with the crisp tartness of the grapefruit. Drizzled in a sweet-sour vinaigrette, it’s perfect for a light lunch or dinner – and even better, it packs a serious Vitamin C punch.
