Grapefruit, Melon, And Orange Salad

Grapefruit And Orange Salad

Here’s a breakfast conundrum: grapefruit, orange, or melon?

Well, why not have them all? This fresh fruit salad combines the classic breakfast trio with a pair of blood oranges for color and some lime zest for a little extra zing. You could serve it inside a melon shell for an extra-fancy side, or just make a batch the night before and leave it in the fridge for a cool morning treat.

If you’re not big on fruit in the morning, this would also make an easy and simple dessert, especially because you can prep it ahead of time so you don’t have to worry about it while you’re making dinner. Just pull it out of the fridge, sprinkle some mint leaves on top, and you’re all ready to enjoy.
