RECIPE BACKSTORY
You definitely don’t want bitter pith on your citrus slices in this salad, so don’t peel them by hand. Instead, set the fruit on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to remove the skin, cutting off strips from top to bottom, and working your way around. Use the knife to remove any lingering pith you might have missed.
