It’s a good thing that winter is citrus season, because I think most of us could probably use something sunny and cheery right about now. There’s nothing like some zesty lemon or orange to usher us though these remaining winter days. These fruits round out flavor in a dish, with their bright acidity, not to mention they deliver a nice, bright pop of color!
So today, we’re sharing 15 recipes we’ve found that are bursting with vibrant citrus, their freshness and zest hinting that spring is near. From a blood orange loaf cake that’s sure to cure you of the winter blues, to a creamy lemon one-pot pasta, we’ve got all your bases covered! The sun’ll come out tomorrow. (But if it doesn’t, these citrus recipes will make up for it)!

Amazing! I am just starting to enjoy the beautiful blood oranges this season has to offer. This is a great round up – think I will need to try that loaf cake for sure!
I love that citrus fruits are in season in the winter. It almost seems wrong to have something so sunny and bright be legal at this time of year, but I adore all the tart and sweet flavors all year round.
Thanks so much Ali!!! :)
