Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Winter Citrus & Pomegranate Fruit Salad
Ruby red grapefruit, orange and clementine slices topped with pomegranate seeds and toasted and drizzled with honey, this Winter Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad is as colorful as it is healthy and delicious.
When I saw this Winter Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad in December's Whole Living, I immediately tore out the recipe and stuck it in my file as a Christmas breakfast possibility.
I think I'm also going to add this fruit salad to my Easter Brunch menu.
In true Martha Stewart fashion, the recipe called for a cara cara orange, a fancy red-fleshed naval orange, that wasn't available at my market, so I opted for a plain old naval orange instead.
I also substituted toasted sweetened coconut for the unsweetened called for since it's what was in the pantry, and decreased the pomegranate seeds to ¼ cup from 1 cup, which seemed like way too many.
I also used a little less toasted coconut than specified.

Peeling the citrus is the most challenging aspect of this simple fruit salad.
If you're not sure the best way to do it, I'm including this video showing how to peel a grapefruit:
Citrus and Pomegranate Fruit Salad with Toasted Coconut
- 1 ruby grapefruit, peeled and pith removed, sliced crosswise
- 1 naval orange, peeled and pith removed, sliced crosswise
- 2 clementines, peeled and pith removed, sliced crosswise
- ¼ cup pomegranate seeds
- 2 tablespoons sweetened coconut, toasted**
- 1 teaspoon honey for drizzling (or more as desired)
- Arrange the grapefruit, orange and clementine slices on a platter.
- Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and toasted coconut and drizzle with honey.
- **To toast coconut: Spread sweetened shredded or flaked coconut on a rimmed baking sheet and bake, stirring often, until golden, about 5 to 10 minutes. Be sure to watch it closely because the added sugar causes irregular browning and it's easy to burn.
