  • 1 teaspoon jalapeño pulp (see recipe instruction no. 1)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon lime juice
  • about 1 orange
  • about 1 Blood orange
  • about 1/2 grapefruit
  • lime and lemon zest for garnish


  1. Use a Microplane grater/zester to grate the jalapeño pepper into pulp. If you don't have one, use a knife to finely chop the pepper until you have a purée.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the jalapeño, honey, lemon and lime juice. Mix until everything is well incorporated. Set aside.
  3. Now peel and then cut all of the citrus into approximately 1/4 inch slices -- just like this.
  4. Arrange a stack of citrus on two serving plates -- in any order you'd like, with about 1 teaspoon of the honey-jalapeño dressing between each slice.
  5. Garnish with lemon and lime zest and serve chilled or at room temperature.
