Fresh Orange Salad Recipe
  • Toast the almonds and coconut and set aside until needed.
  • Peel and section the oranges; set them aside while you prepare the other ingredients.
  • Pour the sugar and marmalade in a saucepan; cook over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Remove this mixture from the heat and add the white grape juice and Sprite. Stir until well blended.
  • Add the cornstarch and salt; stir until the cornstarch is mixed into the marmalade mixture.
  • Put the mixture back over medium heat and bring it to a full boil over. Boil for one minute or until glaze has thickened. Then remove the glaze from the heat.
  • Allow the glaze to cool to room temperature and pour the mixture over the orange segments. Stir until all pieces are evenly coated.
  • Add half of the almonds and half of the coconut to the orange mixture; stir to distribute evenly.
  • Cover the salad with plastic or place in an airtight container; chill in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Just before serving, sprinkle the top with the remaining almonds and coconut.
