Citrus Fruit Salad with Almond Milk Jelly
“Winter is the season for citrus and right now there are masses of varieties to choose from. I make this with whatever I have on hand. You might like to try lemonade fruit (a hybrid navel orange and lemon cross) its sweetness marries beautifully with sour limes and the deep flavours of ripe blood oranges” Holly Davis

Instructions
Citrus Fruit Salad
  1. Take each piece of fruit and cut off each end using a sharp knife
  2. Stand fruit on its flat end and slice off the skin, pith and membrane, exposing the flesh
  3. Slip the knife between the skin and membrane cutting out the individual segments
  4. Place the segments in a bowl and repeat. You will now have a bowl of citrus jewels
  5. Squeeze out the juice that remains in the skins
Almond Milk Jelly
  1. Soak the gelatine in a bowl of cold water until softened, then drain well
  2. Place the vanilla bean and half the almond milk in a pan
  3. If you prefer a sweet jelly add a little maple syrup or raw sugar, to taste
  4. Heat to just below a simmer, allow to cool a little, then add the drained gelatine and stir until melted
  5. Pour into a serving dish and refrigerate for 8–12 hours
  6. Remove from the fridge 20 minutes prior to serving
  7. Serve in the bowl topped with the citrus salad or turn out onto a flat plate then top with the citrus salad and finely sliced lemon zest, pour the juice around the edge
Recipe Notes

You can use whatever citrus you prefer; the lime is quite sharp so best not to include too much. This salad can accompany sweet or savoury dishes and it makes a vibrant accompaniment to this rich and creamy almond milk jelly. You can make the almond milk jelly the day before as it take 8–12 hours to set.

Making your own almond milk produces absolutely delicious milk with no additives and a deep almond flavour; it’s well worth the effort. See recipe

For a vegetarian jelly: Use agar agar in place of the leaf gelatine. Follow the directions on the pack. I prefer the agar agar flakes.
