Bright, warm, tangy, and sweet, this citrus salad is for ye who sought out Warhead candies as children. It's an elegant play between tartness and sweetness that I absolutely love paired with crunchy cacao nibs. It can be made with any combination of citrus fruits (although you'd be wise to avoid lemon/lime). If you'd like it less tart, use naturally sweet citrus like oranges, tangerines, mandarins and minneolas. I like the tartness of ruby red grapefruit in the mix, personally. Paired with the syrup, the different citrus fruits balance into a stunning show of sunshine brightness.
Peel the grapefruit and oranges and slice the fruit into rounds. Remove the seeds and arrange your fruit on a serving platter. In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, and cayenne. Drizzle the syrup over the slices of citrus. Sprinkle the cacao nibs over top and serve!
