How to Use Citrus on a Sandwich

Here is a fun idea that you can use for almost any sandwich recipe: add citrus to it! Yup – sweet, peeled rounds of citrus add a vibrant, zesty-sweet flavor to sandwiches. They also add a nice amount of fiber and vitamin C to each bite. Use your citrus slice just as you would a tomato slice and layer it in a tall stack. Try oranges, satsumas, tangerines, pink grapefruit, blood orange and white grapefruit. This is a great way to use up end of season winter citrus while you still can! Try pink grapefruit and blood orange on my sprout lovers’ sandwich!.
