It goes without saying that winter's citrus makes us want to hallelujah. Yes, it's the sunshine in a season otherwise filled with vegetables grown underground -- but citrus is also worthy of our praise because it's incredibly versatile: The rind, juice, and fruit can brighten both sweet and savory dishes. It's downright essential in cocktails -- what would a Manhattan be without bitters, or a Negroni without an orange garnish? And there are so many different kinds of citrus, many of which can be found at any market.

Okay, we'll stop gushing. Let's ooh and aah at these 16 recipes that use lemons, limes, grapefruits, and oranges in every which way:
