The flavor depends on how good the oranges are -- if they are bland, the recipe won't be quite as good.
Very refreshing, and simple to make.
Good idea!! In Mexico kids like those kind of snacks. I used to eat carrots, mangos, beets, jicamas, papaya, watermelon, pineapples with lime juice and chili powder (one fruit at the time or fruit salad). <br/>
