2 cara cara oranges
1 lime (for garnish)
1 T shallot, finely chopped
3 T olive oil
1 T lime juice, freshly squeezed
2 T honey
Pinch of kosher salt, optional
Fresh mint for garnish
1) Wisk olive oil, lime juice, honey, and shallot. Set aside.
2) Peel and slice fruit into 1/2-inch round slices*
3) Arrange slices on a platter, drizzle on desired dressing, and sprinkle with fresh mint.
* Cut off ends and lay fruit on the flat side. Use a knife to carve away the peel and pith, but don’t cut away the flesh. Then slice fruit into ½-inch rounds, discarding any seeds.
