Sometimes you just want a bit of sunshine at your table and these citrus fruit slices does just the trick!
Ingredients
  • 1 orange, segmented
  • 1 pink grapefruit, segmented
  • plain yogurt
  • 1 cup pecans
  • olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • mint sprigs – optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375f. Line a cookie sheet with foil. In a bowl add pecans and a splash of olive oil. Toss too combine. Pour pecans onto the foil and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Once you get past the 10 minute mark, keep an eye on them as the pecans can quickly turn too dark which will result in a bitter, burnt taste. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Once cooled, place into a food processor and process until a course, crumbly meal forms. Add a tablespoon of sugar and combine.
  2. Arrange fruit in bowls, sprinkle with roasted pecans and top with a dollop of yogurt.
Notes
Keep some of the citrus juice and use in a salad dressing or sprinkle over the fruit slices before adding the pecans. Use the pecan mixture for apple pie in a jar or sprinkled on other desserts. The pecan mixture will keep in the refrigerator for a month. Enjoy!
