In the heat of the summer, rely on cool and refreshing foods to keep your diet balanced. Cooking outside on the BBQ can be a great way to spend a bit of time in fresh air, and keep your home cooler without a hot oven. And who doesn’t love a fruit salad when the weather is scorching?


  • 1 pink grapefruit, peeled
  • 2 large tangerines
  • 3 navel oranges
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Greek yogurt
  • Minced crystallized ginger, to taste


Cut citrus sections into thirds, after peeling fruit. Place grapefruit, tan- gerines and juice in a large bowl. Add honey and cinnamon. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Mix yogurt and ginger in a different bowl then add fruit. (Add brown sugar, or another sweetener if you don’t care for the tart taste of Greek yogurt!)
