With this citrus fruit salad you already cover half of your daily vitamin C requirement. It plays an important role in the development of connective tissue, bones and teeth. It also protects against cell damage and helps wounds to heal.

As an alternative to blood oranges you can use white or pink grapefruit or even pineapple. You can also sprinkle the salad with chopped nuts. A yoghurt lightly sweetened with honey is ideal for dessert.
