restaurants or taking comfort in our regular spots is one of my favorite things to do. Still, there's nothing like spending time in the kitchen with your friends. No matter how good a restaurant experience is, it doesn't beat working away in the kitchen, chatting with friends and blasting music. Anyone else with me?
1. Peel the grapefruits, oranges, and limes (may need to use a sharp knife) and remove all of the bitter white pith. Work over a small bowl to catch the juices and cut in between the membranes to release the sections. Cut the lime and grapefruit sections into thirds and leave the orange sections whole.
2. Transfer all of the citrus to a serving bowl and toss with the sliced shallot and parsley. Reserve the citrus juice for another use.
3. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, sour cream, maple syrup, and poppy seasons. Lightly season with salt and then lightly toss the dressing with the fruit. Serve immediately.
