Citrus Salad

This is one of my winter favorites. It is especially wonderful for brunch when there aren't a whole lot of other fresh fruit options available in the grocery store. The segments look like glimmering gems!

Grapefruits, segmented (one per 2 people)
Oranges, segmented (one per person)
Blood orange or ruby red grapefruit, 1-2 for color.

Add to taste:
Dark Rum (optional, but very yummy)

Mix together in a pretty bowl (not leaded crystal) and serve at room temperature. Store refrigerated.

Prepare pudding according to instruction on box, add water. Serve cold to room temp. with gingerbread.
