Winter Citrus Salad with Cinnamon Honey Drizzle

I tend to gravitate toward the bounty of citrus that is available during winter.  We own a Cara Cara orange tree, a tangerine tree, and a kumquat tree and we can't wait until winter when they produce their delicious fruit.  It's only fitting that we utilize the abundance of fruit every way we can .  So when I saw this recipe over on I knew I had to make a version of this wonderful Winter Citrus Salad with Cinnamon Honey Drizzle.  

This dish is made with 3 different types of oranges, that are peeled and sliced, then drizzled with a cinnamon honey over the top.  Are you planning your Christmas meals yet?  This is a fabulous salad to serve for your Christmas breakfast or brunch.  It would also be a great dish at lunch as well.  The bright flavors really shine, and it is full of good for you ingredients and nutrients!

Winter Citrus Salad with Cinnamon Honey Drizzle

serves 3-4

2 Cara Cara oranges
1 blood orange
1 navel orange
2 tangerines
2 Tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
splash of water

Trim the ends from the oranges.  Cut off the peel starting from the top going down along the side to the bottom.  You want to cut as closely to the peel as possible so you don't cut away all the fruit.  Lay the fruit on it's side and slice the oranges into rounds about 1/4" thick.  For the tangerines, peel off the skins and try to remove as much of the with membrane as possible.  Separate into sections.   Note:  I used seedless varieties.  If your have seed try and remove them after slicing. 

Arrange the oranges on a platter overlapping.  Top with the tangerine segments.  In a small bowl add the honey, cinnamon, and a tiny splash of water.  Whisk to combine.  If the mixture is too thick to drizzle add another splash of water to loosen it up to your desire.  Drizzle honey over the fruit and serve.
