Sliced Oranges with Almonds and Ginger
Clementine oranges can be used to make a sweet and healthy winter dessert. These tiny oranges are brimming with vitamin C, the almonds provide vitamin E and the ginger contains gingerol, a health-protecting phytochemical. If you can't find clementines in your grocery store, you can use any tangerine in this recipe.
