How to Cut Oranges for Fruit Salad

Oranges take a little bit more time to cut for this salad. You don’t want to just peel the orange and segment it out. The skins around each segment gets tough.

Cut the orange segments out of the skin by using a sharp knife. Cut right up against the skin, on both sides or the segment, angling to a V at the core of the orange.

Once you’ve cut out all the orange segments, squeeze what’s left of the orange over the bowl of fruit you are cutting. See video in recipe card. The orange juice mixed with the honey brings a natural sweetness to this fruit salad.

A quick and easy breakfast or snack is this fruit salad and a Peanut Butter Energy Ball.

  • 2 pints Strawberries quartered
  • 1 pint Blueberries
