This citrus salad makes me feel like it’s the perfect cross between what winter has brought us (citrus and a lot of negative wind chills) and what is in store for spring (so much more produce and weather that doesn’t make me shiver to the bone). I don’t always necessarily use all my produce on time, so making a big salad helps a lot in making sure it gets used before my oranges get all squishy and gross. Fruit salads are perfect for eating with breakfasts or for a snack throughout the week.
