Sweet and Sour Orange

Sweet and Sour Orange

We bought a box of navel oranges at Costco. They were big and juicy but not real sweet. I doctored one up this way and it turned out good. This is one serving, assuming you'll just be making yourself a quick snack. But it might be good served as a salad as well.
Course Salad, Snack
Servings 1


  • 1 navel orange
  • 1 or 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 to 1 tsp sugar (amount you use depends on how sweet the orange already is and how sweet you like it)
  • salt, just a sprinkle


  • Peel orange.
  • Divide into sections.
  • Cut sections into small bite-sized pieces and put in bowl.
  • Sprinkle with the sugar and balsamic vinegar.
  • Sprinkle with tiny bit of salt.
  • Stir.
  • Eat with a spoon.

Variations (not yet tried, try at your own risk!):

  • Add a tiny pinch of cayenne or chile (why not sweet, sour, salty, and hot).
  • Add spice such as cinnamon or cardamom.
  • Sweeten with fruit juice concentrate instead of sugar.
  • Use cider vinegar instead of balsamic.
