Citrus fruit from the Southern U.S. (Texas and Florida, mostly) is available all year ’round in most grocery stores, but the most flavorful, freshest, tastiest citrus is when it’s in season—and that’s from about right after Christmas through early spring. You might not be able to find a decent tomato in the grocery store, but you can get some wonderful oranges, clementines, and grapefruits!

This simple salad brings together three citrus season favorites—blood orange, pink grapefruit, and fresh navel oranges. They are segmented (here’s an easy how-to on that) and then drizzled with a honey-lemon dressing that comes together in a flash. Sprinkle some fresh or dried thyme on top for an added interesting flavor and color contrast. Serve and enjoy!
