Ombre' Citrus Salad

Ombre Citrus Salad with Vanilla Syrup

serves six to eight

This is a very pretty salad and a nice twist on the standard fruit salad. Would be a great

accompaniment to a brunch buffet.

The syrup can be made a few days ahead and would probably be tasty in a cocktail, too!

Choose whatever citrus is in season, the more varied in color the better.

2 blood oranges, peeled and sliced in rounds

2 grapefruits, peeled and sliced in rounds
