Print Recipe


  • 2 medium ruby grapefruit
  • 1 navel orange
  • 1 tangelo / mineola
  • a few drops of orange flower water optional, not more than 1/8 teaspoon or it will taste soapy
  • 15 ml roasted pistachio slivers
  • 15 ml pomegranate seeds
  • 1 ml flaky sea salt
  • 2.5 ml olive oil approximately 1/2 teaspoon


  • Use a small sharp paring knife, cut off the peel and remove the pith from the citrus fruits.
  • Slice the fruits and arrange on a plate and sprinkle with salt flakes.
  • Reserve any juice that is in the cut ends and the unused parts and squeeze into a small bowl or cup.
  • Mix the juice, orange flower water and olive oil (if using) and pour over the citrus slices.
  • Decorate with pistachio slivers, pomegranate seeds and a pinch of flaky sea salt.


If the fruits are very juicy you may find it easier to slice it with the peel and then remove the pith and peel with a sharp knife.
A pinch of chili flakes will add some heat, but is entirely optional.
