If you’re like me, Alyssa, at this point in the winter season there are two things you’re probably pretty much over- the same 3 in-season fruits (bananas, apples and oranges anyone?!), and those healthy New Year’s resolutions.

Don’t worry, though, this winter fruit and citrus salad is here to save you and your taste buds. With a rainbow of colors and flavors and all kinds of healthy goodness, it’s a surefire way to punch up a boring fruit selection and/or your diet, or, ya know, just liven up your next brunch spread!…

  • 1 blood orange, peeled, sectioned and cut into pieces
  • 1 clementine, peeled, sectioned and cut into pieces
  • 1 mandarin orange, peeled, sectioned and cut into pieces
  • 2-3 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped (optional)

On a serving plate, or in a serving bowl, layer the pear, persimmon and citrus fruit. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds, mint and the walnuts (if you’re using them).

Homemade Salad Dressing Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup coconut oil (in liquid form)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons honey
