Expert Tips

* To toast almonds, spread on cookie sheet; bake at 350°F. for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally.Or spread in thin layer in microwave-safe pie pan. Microwave on HIGH for 4 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently.

To prepare citrus for salads, use a sharp paring knife. Working over a bowl to catch the juices, peel the fruit all around, cutting just deeply enough to expose the flesh. Make V-shaped cuts between the membranes to release the fruit's flesh into the bowl below. The chewy membranes and bitter pith will be left behind and can be discarded; the salad will contain morsels of juicy, tender citrus.
