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!…

    Oh my, this looks delicious! I’m loving winter citrus lately – I had it with chia pudding today and it was divine! Glad you shared.

  • What a pretty salad! I’ve never seen what a persimmon looks like cut up! Minus the pomegranate seeds I will definitely be making a version of this! =)
