Citrus Salad

Citrus Salad

I’ve fallen out of the blogging beat lately. As I mentioned in my last post, long hours at the office have left me feeling drained. And uninspired. I kept trying to come up with a spectacular dish or dessert to share, but I was too tired to even think of anything. It eventually dawned on me that at times like this what I need to do is focus on simplicity.

And so I made myself this simple citrus salad. It’s perfect because 1) it’s really, really easy to make 2) it’s delicious and 3) the vitamin C will give me the boost I need to tackle more complex projects, like a sandwich.

  1. Grapefruit is so underrated, and you’re right, the citrus fruits are a good boost of health! I should have breakfasts like this more often!

  2. I can totally empathise with you as I am in a similar position. I think I’ll go home and make this wonderful salad! Just looking at the vibrant colours has perked me up :)

  3. Lol to #3. That is so cute! It looks so happy, too. Just the kind of thing I needed to see. My job’s been wearing me down, also.
