My youngest son doesn't like oranges, but I suspect it is primarily a gripe with the texture of the membranes. I bet he'd like them supremed! I never knew that was what it was called. You learn something new every day!

If he's old enough to be trusted with a knife, teach him to supreme his own after the first few go down well... it's a great technique, but it's time consuming. With grapefruit, BTW, you've got bigger sections and sturdier membranes, so you can peel the fruit and deconstruct it as you go along, separating chunks of fruit from the membrane with your fingers (no need for a knife).

I hope he'll discover a new favorite fruit!

Jill: Your salads make me drool, because I love baby greens and anything! Here's one you might want to try:

Mixed baby greens
walnut pieces
dried cranberries
blue cheese chunks

Raspberry balsamic dressing

That's it. It's divine.

That does sound divine... but I want to put oranges in it, too!

I added some banana chunks to a salad the other day, with catalina dressing... don't knock it if you haven't tried it, LOL.

Mmmm, Angie, sounds great! One of my favorite salads is spinach and baby greens, with fresh strawberries, orange sections, and catalina dressing. I bet bleu cheese would be great with it, too!

I haven't experimented much with sesame seeds. I'll put that on my to-do list! I do love sunflower seeds on a salad, though. Gives you the salty kick and crunch, without the guilt of bacon bits! LOL
