Citrus salad tips
Leave the marrow aside. This salad should be all citrus, not marrow. Cutting the peel and white skin from each citrus wedge is crucial to show off the fruit’s sweet flavor and juicy texture. I also like to remove any exposed pieces of the skin membrane that separates the citrus segments. You can eat this yummy, tasty recipe any meal of the day. Its mint flavor and balanced taste give you an excellent and refreshing feeling.
