Citrus Salad

This morning, i was in the mood for some fruit.
so i decided to try out a citrus salad recipe.
i admit, it was a bit odd to have a "salad" without any sort of lettuce,
it seemed more like a bowl of fruit with a little bit of seasoning/dressing.
Regardless, it was enjoyable, & the combination of fresh fruits was
a great way to start off my morning~
Grapefruit & Orange Salad
let me warn you first,
if youre not a fan of the bitterness of a grapefruit,
then dont follow this recipe.

instead try using blood oranges, mangoes
 or perhaps even sweet strawberries, paired with oranges~
Recipe ;
- 1 grapefruit ; with peel cut
- 1 orange ; with peel cut
- few slices of onions
- 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbs balsamic or red wine vinegar
-  3 Olives pitted & diced (optional)
- Sprinkle of chillie or cayenne powder
- Sprinkle of sea salt
Cut the peels off the fruit with a sharp knife,
& slice them horizontally. Add the rest of the ingredients,
& youre done! Enjoy ~
