This minty citrus salad makes a perfect winter-time treat. Grapefruit and oranges add a wonderful tangy sweetness, and the mint topping makes this salad sing. I served this salad to my friends and they raved about it. I have a feeling you'll love it too!
Remove outer flesh from grapefruit, then remove the skin surrounding the pulp of each grapefruit wedge. This may take some time, especially if you want to keep the pulp intact. Place each wedge on a large plate.
Using a knife, remove the outer flesh of each orange. Then use the knife to slice the orange into wedges, trying to remove as much of the skin as possible. Place each wedge on a large plate.
Finely chop about 8 mint leaves with sugar either by hand, with a handheld chopper or in your food processor. The sugar will be tinted green.
Sprinkle the minty-sugar mixture atop the fruits. Add toasted almonds (optional) and reserved mint leaves as garnish. You can toast the almonds on a sheet pan in your toaster oven (or oven) or for a minute in a pan on your stovetop.
