  • Summary

    I naturally gravitate toward warm ingredients during the cooler months of the year, whether warm in temperature or warm in heat-producing qualities. Because this all-raw salad is served at room temperature or cold, I use one of my favorite spices to bring a natural rise in heat within the body: cinnamon. Cinnamon has been shown to help reduce blood sugar spikes and keep our blood sugar levels nice and steady whenever we eat any carbohydrate, such as fruit. The arrangement of thinly sliced citrus fruits makes for an impressive presentation for the many holidays during the fall and winter season.

    Ingredients

    • 2 large pink grapefruits
    • 2 blood oranges
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh sage
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, for dusting
