Best of the zest

It's not just about fruit salad – there are so many other interesting ways to use citrus fruits. From simply squeezing lime juice over stir-fries and curries to adding segments of juicy orange and grapefruit to salads, there are plenty of ways to get creative with citrus.

Of course, sometimes you just can't beat the classics, such as fruity upside-down cakes or tangy tarts, so we've rounded up our favourite recipes to celebrate glorious citrus fruit…

Crunchy Thai-Inspired citrus salad 

Juicy, zingy and crunchy, this citrus salad is an explosion of textures and tastes – and it has a good kick of chill, too! With lime, grapefruit and orange, this truly is a citrus lover's treat.

Pork loin steaks with citrus salsa

A tangy salsa is the ideal partner for these lean pork steaks – our recipe packs a punch with clementines, grapefruit and lime, with added chilli, shallot and rosemary. 

Blush grapefruit curd tarts

Melt-in-the-mouth, buttery pastry cups are filled with a wonderfully zingy curd filling. We've gone for tart grapefruit instead of lemon with this recipe, and topped with kiwi and mango for a tropical twist.


Orange upside-down cake with pink grapefruit drizzle

Sweet, sticky and seriously delicious, the classic upside-down cake gets a twist with slices of juicy orange, plus a zesty grapefruit and marmalade drizzle. Irresistible!
