Rosh Hashanah Citrus Salad

(recipe, Leah Koenig)


  1. 6 oranges
  2. 4 grapefruit
  3. ½ lb. green grapes
  4. 1 cup pistachios
  5. 1 pomegranate
  6. ½ cup raw honey


  1. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the skin off of the oranges and grapefruits so that the white pith is removed, revealing the glistening fruit. Section the oranges and grapefruits and set aside. Cut all of the grapes in half (it takes some time, but it’s worth it!). Chop pistachios roughly and set aside. Remove pomegranate seeds from shell (this is a great job for kids — but make sure they’re wearing smocks or grubby clothes) and set aside.
  2. Take your favorite large platter. Arrange the orange and grapefruit slices in an alternating pattern. Tuck grapes into the citrus. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and pistachios. Just before serving, drizzle with honey.
